Monthly Meetings

Meetings of the Colchester Land Trust are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm, typically at the Colchester Town Hall.  The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.   The Colchester Land Trust annually devotes one of its monthly meetings to a social gathering of all friends and members.  Typically taking place in the month of June, the annual friends and members meeting is a wonderful venue for getting to know the officers, board members, general membership, partners and others involved with your local land trust.  It is a great way to learn what we've been up to,  to celebrate our accomplishments over the year and learn more about current projects.
