Protecting property & preserving natural resources
Living the Land
Do you like to hike, take photographs, enjoy quiet and serenity? Do you enjoy birding, viewing wildlife, seeking out old stone walls, admiring flora, or being with friends, family or other people who enjoy the outdoors? Do you feel compelled to save natural resources for further generations?
Who We Are
The Northern Connecticut Land Trust preserves and protects over 1800 acres of natural resources, sponsors outdoor activities on its properties and supports efforts to improve local habitats, maintain farmland and provide recreational opportunities.
We need your help and support to accomplish these goals. As a strictly volunteer organization, we rely on memberships, donations, and public and private grants in order to deliver these special services to our communities for present and future generations. The value of protected land exceeds $7 million dollars.
"I lived in Connecticut for over 30 years and my fondest memories are from time spent on the land that is your [NCLT] legacy. With sincere appreciation and thanks."
