Pathways Campaign

Pathways to Protection, Preservation and Permanence

Over the past fifteen years, DNRT has more than doubled the acreage of land we have protected and the miles of trails available for public access. Membership has grown by 70%; staff by 150%. DNRT has outgrown its current home and needs to strengthen its long-term land conservation and stewardship capacity.

We have launched a $1.2 million Pathways Campaign that will:

  • create the “DNRT Center at Helfand Farm” to significantly improve how we do our work and increase our ability to engage the public.
  • create a Land Conservation Fund to protect a number of critical smaller parcels and expand the stewardship of our lands for people and nature.

DNRT relies entirely upon community support and asks that all those who care about the future of Dartmouth join us on our Pathways.

We seek to raise $1.2 million in our Pathways Capital Campaign to provide protection and stewardship of the land and natural areas in Dartmouth. We do not take our future for granted. We need your help and partnership to support our mission!
