It’s fall at NE Connecticut’s largest land trust!
Fall is New England’s signature season; and as the leaves begin the annual turn to their classic yellows and reds, Joshua’s Trust’s properties are in high form.
Accordingly, we have lots of opportunities for appreciating in groups or individually the wonders and beauty of fall in Northeastern Connecticut.
You can learn about edible and medicinal plants at Knowlton Hill Preserve, discuss water and art at the University of Connecticut’s Benton Museum, or join our first book club with a bent for nature, science and the environment.
Joshua’s Trust is, of course, an active participant in The Last Green Valley’s annual “Walktober” which offers more than 100 outdoor and related activities throughout the leaf-peeping season.
Our activities are suited for families – from geocaching to our cider pressing event at our headquarters, Atwood Farm in Mansfield.
Adventurous folks can always set out on their own to find a walk they’ve never walked before using our “Explore Our Properties” link.
And even if you don’t get outside much yourself but appreciate the value and beauty of conserving open space, thanks for being here! We’re doing everything it takes to protect these lands and always looking for more environmentally or historically important land we can buy or have donated.
As a fully accredited land trust, we follow the best practices in conservation. We need you, too — and future generations need you – to help in this process as a donor, volunteer or both. If we don’t protect our beautiful and historic places now, they’ll be lost forever.
