The North Quabbin Regional Landscape Partnership is a voluntary association of public and private groups focused on conserving land and our rural lifestyle. Working together, we save valuable ecologically, historically or culturally significant open space quickly—before it is too late.
The North Quabbin Landscape encompasses a beautiful tapestry of rolling hills, farmlands, expansive forests, wetlands, rivers and lakes. The region includes some of the largest remaining roadless areas in Massachusetts, and supports unique ecosystems and animals dependent on large unfragmented forest blocks, like moose, bobcat, fisher and bear. Places like the Tully Trail, the Quabbin Reservoir, Barton Cove, and Mount Watatic provide exceptional recreational opportunities within two hours of major metropolitan areas.
Find out about our newest effort: Forest Conservation Due Diligence Grants. The Partnership is working with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation to make grants available to qualifying landowners who want assistance with the costs of permanently protecting their land.
The Partnership welcomes your ideas for conserving the rural quality of the North Quabbin Region. You can contact the Partnership Coordinator:
