The Massachusetts Land Initiative for Tomorrow (MassLIFT) was established in 2010 under the leadership of Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust of Athol, Massachusetts. This AmeriCorps program is a collaborative effort of regional conservation organizations seeking to build public support for land conservation, increase regional conservation capacity, strengthen land stewardship, and provide opportunities for youth to connect with nature and engage in service learning. The overall goal of MassLIFT is to accelerate the pace of land protection across the Commonwealth. MassLIFT has transitioned to TerraCorps: an independent nonprofit working at the intersection of the land trust and urban agriculture movements to create a future where land is the foundation of health and well-being for all people in every community. Mount Grace will continue as a host site for new teams of TerraCorps members who will support our mission each year.  The TerraCorps program will now be run from a new, independent, office in Lowell.
