Our Mission

The Eastham Conservation Foundation (ECF) was founded in 1978 as a volunteer, non-profit membership organization to help protect and enhance Eastham’s natural environment for the benefit of the community. ECF has protected more than 300 acres in Eastham through deeded gifts, land purchases, and private conservation restrictions.

ECF collaborates with the Town, as well as other Cape Cod land trusts and non-profit organizations, to preserve Eastham’s precious natural areas and scenic vistas. We work with partners to acquire undeveloped lands, to manage them in their natural condition, to protect wildlife habitat, and to educate the public about the importance of preserving a healthy environment in Eastham—now, and for future generations.

The Eastham Conservation Foundation is a private land trust created in 1978 to protect land in Eastham and to assist the town in its conservation efforts.
