The Berlin Land Trust is a non-profit corporation of volunteers with two major goals:

  1. To preserve land in the town of Berlin and Central Connecticut. A parcel may be significant because of its scenic beauty or importance as a wetland, historic site or natural habitat.

  2. To educate residents about the benefits of land preservation and the local environment. As the pace of development in Connecticut increases, Berlin residents should understand the importance of open space preservation. Land that is under BLT protection will be preserved, according to the wishes of the donor, as permanent open space, kept in its natural state for the benefit of all residents of the town.

The Berlin Land Trust Board of Directors meets on the first Monday of the every month at 7:00 p.m. from September through June. Our Annual Meetings are held in June. (If the first Monday is a holiday, we meet on the 2nd Monday.)

Meetings are currently being held in the Berlin Community Center underneath the Berlin-Peck Memorial Library, 234 Kensington Road, Berlin, CT.

Members and the general public are always welcome!
