Member-supported and non-profit, they were founded in 1974 by Nantucket citizens who cherished the island’s pristine natural setting and who were concerned by increasing environmental impacts. Since its founding, the NLC has effectively protected thousands of acres of land on Nantucket’s beautiful islands. The Land Council encourages informed decision making through close monitoring of local growth and development being considered by the Board of Selectmen, the Conservation Commission and the Planning Board. In addition to land, they are passionate about water quality. They are regularly monitoring and testing stormwater runoff in the harbor and in 2017 they conducted a pilot study on the green crab population in Nantucket Harbor; they advocate and educate on appropriate fertilizer use; and they have conducted numerous studies to determine the health of some of Nantucket’s ponds through water, sediment and fish sampling. They are


also proud to host the State of the Harbor Forum each summer to educate and inform all of Nantucket’s residents.
