EHLT contributed to the acquisition of the listed town properties. We also have preserves and easements without trails where access is not practical or landowners maintain use of the property. Find out more about these properties. Please note, hunting is not permitted on EHLT preserves, but please wear orange during hunting season as a safety precaution.
We currently protect 700 acres of land in preserves and through property easements. Many of our preserves have marked hiking trails open to the public.
