“Ecopixel understood our budget and our size, and seemed to have a real grasp for the kind of work we do — a non-profit doing local land conservation work. The site was developed in scale with our operation and with room to grow.”—Heather Furman, Past Executive Director, Stowe Land Trust

Ecopixel offers website features and integrated Web tools that help land trusts meet their goals.
