Conservation Initiatives

Since our inception in 2001, we have preserved over 520 acres of land in the Barrington Area including conservation easements on private homeowner property as well as BACT’s own nature preserves. Our conservation initiatives focus on:

Preserve: Permanently preserve private land and water resources.

Restore: Restore the properties we preserve.

Inspire: Educate and inspire the community to participate in local conservation efforts.

Together, we are making a difference in our community!

Barrington Area Conservation Trust has preserved 520 acres of land, we have 10 conservation easements, 17 heritage corridor scenic byways, and 5 nature preserves. In the past 2 years, we have planted 10,000+ native plants and shrubs, installed 52 monarch pollinator gardens, planted 110 oak trees. We have inspired 1000+ high school students and engaged 300+ volunteers. You can help us continue this work with your generous contribution.
