About the Trustees

We enjoy and care for more than 100 special places - roughly 47,000 acres - all around Massachusetts.

For more than a century, The Trustees has been on the ground in communities across Massachusetts, working to protect special places, providing loving care of our reservations, building creative new programs to engage people, and sharing our expertise with neighbors and partners across the state.

Through our property shops and online store, we aim to bring visitors intentional products that inspire a love and appreciation for nature, art, and history. We take great care in choosing the products we sell and all of the items we carry must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Women/LGBTQ+/BIPOC/AAPI-Owned
  • Made in New England
  • Made in USA
  • Eco-Friendly, Sustainable Materials
  • Artisan/Small-Batch
  • Organic/Sustainably Grown
  • Ethically Manufactured
