The MA Chapter of The Sportsmen’s National Land Trust is focused on MA.

Unfortunately, open space and access to it are becoming more and more difficult to find. Loss of habitat through development and pollution are easily recognized, but loss of access to habitat is quietly but dramatically changing the sporting landscape. Loss of access is occurring through posting of private land, acquisition and posting of land by preservation groups, redefinition of multiple use of state land where hunting is deemed to be incompatible, and so on. Even lease fees and mandatory written permission for hunting rights effectively restrict access to the majority of sportsmen.

As a result of loss of access, future generations may never get the chance to enjoy the outdoor traditions that sportsmen have cherished for centuries. Unfortunately, loss of access to quality hunting and fishing seems to be more and more common. The Sportsmen’s National Land Trust was founded to reverse this trend. Our mission is to preserve open space and wildlife habitat with guaranteed access for future generations to carry on the tradition of hunting and fishing.
