MANAGING OUR LAND

GBF is an accredited land trust and protects natural areas by acquiring real estate and partnering with landowners to establish conservation easements on private lands. GBF has a responsibility to steward our protected properties in a way that promotes high quality habitats and clean water for our Bay. Volunteers are encouraged to join us for “stewardship workdays” to help care for our land.
