East Haddam Land Trust Calendar

It's time to submit your photos for the 2022 calendar. We seek photos from people of all ages. Explore the Land Trust preserves and capture the sights there in all seasons. Photos may be submitted during September 2021.

The 2021 calendar featured 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 throughout town. This birdhouse photo, by Gary Wilson, was on the back cover of the 2021 calendar. 2021 calendars may still be available at local businesses and the East Haddam Municipal Complex.
