The 300 Committee is a private, non-profit land trust dedicated to protecting and preserving open space for the citizens of Falmouth, Massachusetts. Founded by a small group of volunteers to commemorate the Town of Falmouth's 300th anniversary in 1986, The 300 Committee has helped protect more than 2,300 acres throughout our community for conservation, recreation and water protection. Our important land preservation work is made possible by the support of our 1,200  annual members. If you are not already on our membership roster, we hope you will consider joining.
