Mission Statement

The mission of the Hamden Land Conservation Trust is to protect and preserve open space in Hamden through purchase or easements, and to educate the public about conservation issues.

What is a land conservation trust?

A land conservation trust is a local non-profit organization that promotes the preservation of open space lands for current and future generations. Land conservation trusts are active in many Connecticut towns and across the United States. The Hamden Land Conservation Trust was founded in 1969. Today it is the caretaker and protector of a wide variety of open space lands throughout the town. Our land conservation trust works to make Hamden a better community to live in by connecting people to the land and preserving places where people can appreciate nature, as well as protecting the land and woods that purify our streams and reservoirs.
