Since its establishment in 1992, Sweet Water Trust has been actively involved in conservation work in New England and Upstate New York, focusing in recent years on the forests of the Northern Appalachians, including neighboring lands in Canada. In our sixteen years, we have had a part in conserving nearly half a million acres of land that will remain Forever Wild!
Since 1992, Sweet Water Trust has made over 600 grants to protect land as wild and to encourage support of wilderness values. In recent years, we have focused on large, landscape-scale conservation projects, often supported with major, multi-year grants. While we still expect to make a few smaller grants each year, all projects must meet the criteria set out in our grant guidelines. One particularly important requirement is that the land's wilderness qualities be protected by a conservation easement or equivalent permanent legal instrument.
To apply for a Wild Land, Wild Water grant, please telephone for an interview. We do not accept unsolicited proposals.
Sweet Water Trust also owns land and holds conservation easements in New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
