Join the Cheshire
Land Trust

Show your support for conservation locally


Open spaces provide habitat for wildlife, protection for our water supply and countless benefits to the community. Cheshire's meadows, green ways, farmland, wetlands and open spaces should not be taken for granted. Join in our mission to preserve the town's natural character and beauty.

The Cheshire Land Trust seeks gifts of land to guarantee preservation for future generations. Membership dues and contributions provide for management of these properties. CLT is a 501(c)3 tax exempt corporation. Your donations are tax deductible. We receive no taxpayer funds.

This website was made possible in large part by content contributions from former CLT Presidents Mark Kasinskas and Tim Slocum. Much of what you read in this website is the direct result of their thorough research and content they provided over the years. 

The members of the land trust would also like to show our gratitude to past president Jeanne Chesanow and to David Schrumm, along with former board member Sigrun Gadwa, naturalist Eric Nelson and Bert Cran, a charter CLT member, for invaluable contributions made to the content in this website and out in the field.
