Gates Mills Land Conservancy
"Dedicated To Preserving a Unique Natural Treasure"
The mission of the Gates Mills Land Conservancy is to preserve the natural, recreational, and scenic resources of the Village of Gates Mills and the Chagrin River Valley by acquiring land and conservation easements through gifts and purchases.
We preserve land in our lovely historic Western Reserve village, so that it may continue to be the very special place it is today, for generations to come. Gates Mills Village is uniquely positioned geographically, protected by "green" communities to the North and South but threatened by very rapid development and commercialization on its Eastern border and the urban sprawl of Cuyahoga County to the West.
The only sure defense our Village has to prevent being drastically changed forever by these pressures is the preservation of the abundance of open land within the Village and on its borders.
