The Block Island Conservancy is the oldest environmental protection group on Block Island.  It is a grass roots organization that has been working towards preserving the unique characteristics of the Island, which so many have grown to love. It is through contributions, large and small, from members and supporters, that the Block Island Conservancy is able to acquire land for a variety of uses.  The Block Island Conservancy is dedicated to maintaining habitats for animals and birds; protecting the natural beauty of this Island; providing trails for walking, and quiet recreation; and protecting Block Island’s natural heritage, rural character, and public access to its resources.   You can be a part of this effort and help preserve Block Island!

More than 44% of the Island is preserved as open space in perpetuity; a legacy that will be passed to future generations.  This achievement provides recreational areas, preserves scenic views, protects crucial habitats for rare plants and animals, and protects the natural recharging of the Island’s sole source aquifer, its only water supply.  But there is still much to be done.  All open land is critical to maintaining the heritage and character that is Block Island.
