The Wallingford Land Trust, Inc.
The Wallingford Land Trust, Inc. is a non profit organization dedicated to the preservation of natural habitats and areas of scenic beauty in Wallingford, Connecticut.
The Land Trust accomplishes this by acquiring properties and maintaining them as open space for passive recreational use by the public. Today, the WLT manages fourteen properties, covering more than 200 acres.
Life has changed so rapidly over the past thirty years
Life has changed so rapidly over the past thirty years. What hasn't changed is our need for places where we can still connect with nature. We will not have those places unless we preserve areas where wildlife can thrive in its natural habitat. That takes the personal involvement of those who want to retain a high quality of life in our community.
New Trail Guide
We have created a booklet with maps and directions to the trails on WLT property. Download your copy here.
Work Party Days
Yes work can be fun (as long as it's not at the office). That why it's a work PARTY!
On the third Saturday of every month (Starting this April 21st) We will do various small property maintenance projects such as trash pickup, trail clearing, erosion control, sign and blaze improvement and the like. The work party will start at 9:00am and last about 3 to 4 hours. We will meet at the cul-de-sac on Barns Road North (entrance to Spruce Glen property), unless another location is indicated on the web site. The first work party will be April 21st and we will be doing our spring property cleanup. We will visit each of our properties and pickup trash at the access points. We will meet at Spruce Glen and we will go from there.
So mark the 3rd Saturday of the month for some work and fun. Checkout the "Events" page on the web site for the latest information on the meeting place and planed project.
