CURRENT PROJECTS

CLT has received funding for stewardship, including management plans for three properties: Bulkeley Hill Preserve, Gateway, and Macdonald Road. Our main focus will be on BHP and it will include invasive species control, habitat improvements, tree regeneration, planting of native vegetation around the parking lot, and trail maintenance. These projects will be accomplished through mostly volunteer labor and with funds provided by the Natural Resources Conservation Service. Watch for opportunities to help your Land Trust with these projects. We will post work events on social media and through targeted emails.

Drop by sometime to enjoy the trails and inspect our progress.  Please respect the forest, the trails, the parking lot and all adjacent private property. Your cooperation and respect are greatly appreciated! 

Watch our early progress !
