ECF protects and manages over 294 acres in Eastham, most of which have been donated by conservation minded persons. These include upland mixed forest habitat, fresh water marsh habitat and salt marsh. Soon, we hope to include a listing and maps of these properties on our website.
Ten parcels totaling 57 acres are protected by Conservation Restriction where the ownership is retained but in exchange for not developing the parcel the real estate taxes are significantly reduced. In addition, the property owner is eligible for tax credits and deductions.

Protecting the remaining habitat which is not yet developed is critical to sustaining the remarkable beauty and fragile nature of this unique peninsula.
