East Haddam Land Trust Calendar


We plan an exciting new calendar for 2021.


It will be centered around photographs taken by young and old, Land Trust members and East Haddam residents documenting East Haddam's natural world: the plant and animal life from the soil through the sky found on Land Trust and Town preserves and throughout the Town. 


It will only be as good as the pictures you submit so we encourage everyone to take and send us remarkable shots. The photo submission requirements are outlined below. 


These new calendars will first be distributed to EHLT members. The remaining calendars may be collected at our libraries and various locations in early-mid December 2020.

East Haddam Land Trust Photo Calendar Rules

While photographers retain complete copyright over their entries, the Land Trust retains a royalty-free right of use, display, and reproduction of the photos for purposes of publication in all media including, but not limited to: website use, social media, exhibitions, slideshows, and other items for fund-raising. In such use, every attempt will be made to credit the photographer.

It is each entrant’s legal responsibility to ensure that they comply with these ownership and copyright requirements and that they own the rights to reproduction of their photos without violating the rights of any third party. Entrants who do not fulfill these criteria will be deemed ineligible and disqualified.
