Hikes and Events Calendar
The Colchester Land Trust hosts monthly (or more) hikes, outings and community events that are designed to connect people with nature and each other. Generally*, hikes and events are free for CLT members, and a nominal fee of $5 each adult for non-members, and kids under 18 are free.
These events take place in Colchester and the surrounding towns, sometimes in partnership with town organizations or neighboring land trusts. They are focused on conservation, environment, or just FUN. There are events for individuals, families, kids, for differing interests and physical abilities. All are welcome.
*Specifics and fees for events can vary so please see the event details.

Monthly Meeting of Board of Directors
The board of the Colchester Land Trust regularly meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM, usually in Colchester Town Hall meeting rooms* at 27 Norwich Avenue.

Annual Meeting Of Membership
The Colchester Land Trust annually devotes one of its meetings to a social gathering of all friends, members, and interested citizens. Typically taking place in the month of June, the annual friends and members meeting is a wonderful venue to get 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 to learn more about current projects. Sign up for our emails to get on the invite list, too!
