Welcome to NE Connecticut’s Largest Land Trust!

Thanks to people like you, more than 4,000 acres in 14 Connecticut towns will never be developed. We’re doing everything it takes to protect those 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 — and we also have an active program of guided hikes, many led by expert naturalists.

JoshuasTrust.org is your source for finding the nearest properties and exploring them on your own with details on trails and the history that makes them unique. You’ll also find the latest information on upcoming walks and events and volunteer opportunities.

Please let us know what you think, and check us out on FaceBook. We need you — and future generations need you. If we don’t protect our beautiful and historic places now, they’ll be lost forever. We’re glad you’re here!
