There are many ways you can help East Haddam Land Trust. Our mission is to preserve and protect land in perpetuity for the public interest. We do this by:
  • Preserving land and waterways that enhance the local human and wildlife communities;

  • Protecting and acquiring parcels that add to existing preserved open space and or/protects vital natural areas;

  • Stewarding existing preserves to protect flora, fauna, and wetlands;

  • Raising funds, encouraging membership, and maintaining a healthy financial status to support land acquisition and stewardship;

  • Engaging members and the public in activities that increase appreciation and understanding of the region's natural spaces and wildlife;

  • Collaborating with regional conservation groups to encourage and support regional conservation goals.

Become a Preserve Steward or Trail Monitor

Our Stewardship Team plans regular work parties to clear trails, maintain trails, and monitor preserve boundaries. Trail Monitors choose to help remove small brush and fallen branches from the trails they regularly use and report any issues that need the more involved work of the Stewardship Team.
