Winding River Land Conservancy

56 North Canal Street
Holyoke, MA 01040


About Us:

Winding River Land Conservancy has worked directly with families, nonprofit groups, state agencies and local municipalities to provide permanent protection for many properties. WRLC has worked to protect agricultural land and non-agricultural land such as forests, wetlands and other important wildlife habitat. WRLC has especially focused our work on the communities of Agawam, Blandford, Granville, Montgomery, Russell, Southwick, Tolland, West Springfield, and Westfield.

WRLC's work has included development of agricultural preservation restrictions for agricultural land, conservation restrictions for nonagricultural land, accepting gifts of land or development restriction donations from families and other parties. We have worked with families, nonprofit groups and local municipalities to help them apply for and receive funding for land protection, including assisting with grant applications to provide resources for land protection.

Our Mission:

Winding River Land Conservancy (WRLC) is a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and protect natural open space and farmland in Western Hampden County and parts of southern Hampshire County for present and future generations. Winding River Land Conservancy has protected over 3,000 acres since its inception in 1998 and continues to preserve properties annually.
