Southeast Land Trust’s (SELT) vision is a simple statement of the relationship of people, community, and nature: conserved lands in every community, sustaining people and nature.

Their mission is to protect and sustain the significant lands in our communities for clean water, outdoor recreation, fresh food, wildlife, and healthy forests. This mission recognizes that conservation is achieved in two steps – first protection and then stewardship. It also clearly ties the desire for conservation land to people and communities while continuing to recognize that sustenance of nature itself is a goal of our work too.

The Lewis Family Foundation supports SELT‘s efforts to conserve historic farms and forests in southern New Hampshire.
