The Trust is administered by the Trustees at the law firm of Choate Hall & Stewart LLP in Boston, Massachusetts. Specific objectives of the Trust (in order of priority) include:

- Management techniques designed to improve environmental quality and species diversity.
- Bird and forestry research and management, especially at the applied level rather than the theoretical or molecular level.
- Creation of materials or projects designed to foster an appreciation of and a concern for wildlife and natural systems.
