The Trust is dedicated to helping those who have land to donate for conservation. If you wish to save your open space, navigate the legal requirements, and learn of the many financial benefits of donating land, we offer professional advisers who can assist you in the procedures required.

We devote our time and our energy and our funds. And we very much need your help! If you are reading this, no matter where you currently reside, please become a member. We all need to work together and individually to maintain as much peaceful, inspiring, natural, unpolluted land as we can in Provincetown, on the Cape, on our planet.

Would you like to be the Steward of a Provincetown Conservation Trust property? Stewards "adopt" a conservation property, get together with friends and family to keep it free of trash, report plant or animal sightings, and take photos and videos. Be a Steward and report on your adopted property to the Trustees.

Some of the properties currently needing Stewards are owned by the PCT; for others, owned by the Town of Provincetown, the PCT holds conservation restrictions. The PCT holds conservation restrictions on some private properties with public access, other properties are conservation areas that are not open to public access.

Right now, the Snail Road Woods (formerly Sateriale property), Foss Woods, Nicky's Park (off Harry Kemp Way), and the Shankpainter Ponds Conservation Area (formerly the Patrick property off Route 6) are properties needing stewardship. Junior Stewards are welcome too!

Contact Jim McCullen, Stewardship Director


Volunteers are needed year-round to collect and sort wine corks. The Corks to Trees projects keeps corks out of the waste stream and selling them provides funds for replanting Provincetown open spaces with native trees, shrubs and other vegetation. If you are in Provincetown with your corks, please drop them off at Penny's Liquors or Yardarm Liquors. These two local businesses have generously agreed to be our public drop-off points.

Please specify "corkers" in subject line.


We also need volunteers for the following categories

land stewardship - photography - corks to trees - membership drives - parties/events planning - property clean-ups -  grant searches/applications - publicity - environmental research - plant & animal identification and counts - signage design - school outreach
