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 418 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. 

The Berlin Land Trust is a member and wholeheartedly supports the work of these fine organizations:

BLT's Efforts on Lamentation Mountain

A new hiking trail is being developed on Lamentation Mountain. The Yellow Trail will introduce an alternative route for ascending and descending from the top ridge of the Alice Fern Bruce Preserve. The trail will likely be opened in the late spring or early summer.

You can now become a member of the Berlin Land Trust using an on-line process, or, if you prefer, you can mail your membership to us via the USPS .  Please check out our membership page using the button below:
