Happy New Year!

Thank you to all our supporters for bringing out the best in 2020. Despite the challenges, MHLC made great strides in local conservation and opened 2 new preserves, providing the public with even more access to nature!

Bender Melon Farm Success!

It's official - MHLC purchased the 195-acre Bender Melon Farm! Over the winter, we will work on cleaning up the property and start planning for trails and other improvements.

Farmland Protection

3 acres of farmland are lost to development every minute in the United States. We're fighting back.
