The Northern Connecticut Land Trust ( is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in the northeastern part of Connecticut.  The Mission of the Trust is to preserve the natural resources of the northern Connecticut region including agricultural land and other ecologically important open space.  As the only non-profit, open space protection group in the area, dedicated landowners come to the Trust to protect their heritage.  Landowners may transfer land as a gift, sold at fair market value or the sale of land to the Trust below market value can offer income tax benefits to the donor.  Deed restrictions, lifetime use by the donor, and other stipulations are opportunities for donors to consider.  Each parcel is managed according to the donor's wishes through our monitoring and stewardship programs.  Conservation easements (whereby landowners may donate or sell development rights to their land while maintaining ownership and other property rights) is another option.

The Northern Connecticut Land Trust is integrally involved in protecting land in Ellington, Enfield, East Windsor, Somers, Stafford, Tolland and Vernon by:

Preserving and protecting the natural resources in the north-central region of Connecticut;
Sponsoring outdoor activities to enjoy the protected lands;
Supporting efforts to improve local habitats, maintain farmland and extend recreational opportunities.
