The Hastings Prince Edward Land Trust is a volunteer operated, non-governmental, registered charitable corporation. HPELT was formed to protect the natural beauty and cultral heritage of the Hastings and Prince Edward region in Ontario. The Land Trust is entitled to receive land, donations, bequests of funds, and issue tax receipts.

HPELT works with landowners to place Conservation Easements on private lands for the purposes of protecting these properties forever.
The Trust’s goal is to assist the community in protecting our special places through education, scientific research and cooperative land management . Working with our community partners, this goal can be achieved either by direct ownership and management of land, by holding conservation easements, or by a range of stewardship initiatives with landowners.
