DCLT MEMBERSHIP JOIN or RENEW your membership!
Why become a Member? DCLT is a community of conservation-minded people who care about Dennis and the natural and cultural features that are unique within this town. DCLT purchases and accepts by donation lands throughout the town of Dennis. The Trust has acquired over 640 acres since it was established in 1988. The lands include coastal properties, lands surrounding freshwater ponds, saltwater marshes, woodlands, and wetlands.
Your tax-deductible contributions are vital to the success of the Dennis Conservation Land Trust. Our Members provide the primary source of our funding, making it possible for DCLT to preserve and protect land and open spaces for generations to come. The contributions we receive also support our operating costs for monitoring and maintaining the lands under our care, and the educational and community outreach programs we offer. Any remaining funds are added to a capital fund for use when land acquisition opportunities arise. Many thanks to all our Members and Friends who give in so many ways – financially, through in kind donations, by volunteering to steward our lands, and in serving on our Board of Trustees, and Event Committees throughout the year! Together we are able to accomplish the mission and goals of this organization.

TO DONATE Make a donation here. Another way to give: The work of Dennis Conservation Land Trust is made possible by general donations as well. Annual donations help cover the costs of doing business — keeping the office going, staff expenses covered, and purchase of tools and equipment for maintaining our properties.
Special gifts. A Special Gift may be earmarked to meet the funding needs of special projects – such as, building a kiosk at a trailhead or property interpretive signs. The Trust has been greatly helped by memorial gifts made to honor an individual. What better way to support the legacy of an individual who particularly loved Dennis and its environs than with a gift to preserve land in their memory?
Bequests. The Dennis Conservation Land Trust has been the recipient of extraordinary gifts of legacy through bequests established in an individual’s will. Recently, Marge Milano of East Dennis gifted a large sum of money at the time of her death to benefit land acquisition by the Trust. Her vision and generosity will be preserved forever having made possible the protection of some special properties in Dennis. We encourage you and yours to consider gifting to the Trust in your will. We have tax and legal advice available.
