Protecting Open Space in

Central Connecticut since 1988

The all-volunteer Berlin Land Trust (BLT) was established in 1988 by a group of citizens concerned about the quickly disappearing open space fields, wetlands and woodlands in Berlin and surrounding towns.

Currently we are preserving over 409 acres in perpetuity within six (6) central Connecticut towns.

We appreciate your interest and support for preserving and protecting open space lands in Central Connecticut. We've developed this website to chronicle our work and share important information with you.

BLT's Efforts on Lamentation Mountain

During the Fall 2021, a new hiking trail was blazed on Lamentation Mountain. The White Trail is situated below the top ridge of the Alice Fern Bruce Preserve. The trail is approximately one-half (1/2) mile in length and traverses in the north-south direction.
