Sunday Woods Walk, March 28, 2021, 1-3 pm, Pre-registration required.

Register for our Woods Walk, our first scheduled event since the pandemic hit.

Two Land Trust leaders will lead up to 12 hikers at Miller Farm Preserve, a blend of mostly hardwood forest, wooded wetlands and streams. Sights and sounds may include the small creatures in vernal pools and wetlands and woodland birds. The trails have some elevation changes but are mostly level.

Pre-register by March 27 by emailing events@ehlt.org. Please include your name and the number of hikers in your party. Registration is first-come-first-served.

Masks and social distancing from anyone not in your immediate pandemic pod a must. Please do not attend without registering so we can maintain a safe leader-to-hiker ratio. Canceled due to weather. Next Woods Walk: April 25.

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 the 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.
