The grounds of the agricultural society hall. Mark Lovewell

Wednesday, August 5, 2015

Vineyard Conservation Society was formed in 1965 by a group of conservationists concerned about development on the Lobsterville moors. Fifty years later, the VCS endures, its mission unchanged. Over the course of the last half century, the organization has preserved land from Edgartown to Aquinnah through conservation restrictions and parternships with other organizations. The VCS has helped preserve farmland and pieces of the Island's agricultural history, and worked on advocacy, outreach and education about environmental issues. The society holds 19 conservation restrictions and today it has more than 1,000 members.
