“The conservation of natural resources is the fundamental problem. Unless we solve that problem it will avail us little to solve all others.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
The Colchester Land Trust works to protect land, water, and air quality and maintain the rural character of Colchester. We are an all volunteer organization working to save the places you love for future generations. Membership and private contributions are the primary source of our operating income so we urge all who care about Colchester to join the Colchester Land Trust and become a member TODAY! As a member you will receive our newsletter and invitations to special events. Most importantly, your membership donation helps us to protect the special places in our community.
Whether your interests lie in the great outdoors or at the conference table, we have a volunteer opportunity for YOU! The Colchester Land Trust has on-going needs for assistance with regular events such as our monthly hikes, annual road race, as well as periodic stewardship work such as trail cleanup and maintenance, and occasional community representation at our event booth. If you would like to help the Colchester Land Trust in its day to day operations or with special events, please get in touch.
Attend A Meeting!
Do you care about land use issues in town? Could you be interested in some of the important, behind the scenes work we are doing? The Colchester Land Trust meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm. Most meetings are held at the Colchester Town Hall and all are open to the public. We would love to have your input!
Leave a Legacy!
When the Colchester Land Trust protects a property, it comes with the promise that it will be protected forever. Our all-volunteer trust works diligently to monitor and care for our existing properties while focusing on new conservation opportunities. Annual giving from our members will always be important to our work, but by including the Colchester Land Trust in your estate planning, you provide the means for the CLT to carry on its work beyond our lifetimes. If you plan to include a bequest of land, securities, or money to the Colchester Land Trust, please let us know so that we may thank you in your lifetime.
