About us

The first gift of open space property to the Land Trust occurred in 1979. In the succeeding years, the Land Trust has received additional gifts from twenty four donors. The parcels, ranging in size from less than one acre to over 60 acres, are found throughout the town. Property now under the protection of the Land Trust exceeds 252 acres.

The Land Trust also played a major role in developing the Enchanted Trail, a public trail blazed with diamond-shaped yellow markers that crosses Bethel from Meckauer Park in the north to Huntington Park in the south.
