    About Us

    The Chatham Conservation Foundation is a non profit organization dedicated to the purpose of acquiring land, by gift or purchase to be preserved in its natural state in perpetuity. It was the first land conservation entity on Cape Cod when it received its Charter from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 1962. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees and supported by a dues-paying membership. An annual meeting of the membership is held generally on the first week in August in Chatham.

    The Foundation maintains four walking trails for public use on its property and provides a Trail Map of these areas. CCF also owns the Mayo House, an 1700’s home and furnishings located in Chatham center, which it opens every summer with docent tours free of charge to the public.
