Membership in the Essex Land Trust is open to all – individuals, families and organizations. Individual members are listed in our publications and website according to the following levels of giving:

Conservator For Life (CFL) is a special designation reserved for those who contribute $1500 in membership dollars in a given year. The names of CFL members are commemorated on a plaque in the Cross Lots preserve.


Income from memberships and sponsors is the main source of funding for the Land Trust’s operating expenses. These contributions help us maintain and improve our fifteen preserves, identify and pursue new land purchases, and increase public awareness of land conservation and preservation.
