Guilford Land Conservation Trust

The Guilford Land Conservation Trust is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization devoted to preserving open space and natural resources in Guilford, Connecticut for public benefit.

Formed in 1965 by local conservationists, the land trust is one of the oldest in the state. With 1,500 members and 2,700 acres in holdings, it is also the largest town land trust in Connecticut.

A membership-elected board of 13 directors, serving without compensation, manages the land trust. Because the land trust is independent, it can respond quickly and effectively to purchase and preserve land. Most of the land owned and protected by the land trust has been acquired through the generosity of its membership, bequests and gifts. Additional funds have come from state grants and additional open space has been acquired through subdivision set-asides.

Because the land trust's directors and members maintain its properties as volunteers, all resources received by the land trust are applied directly to land acquisition and preservation.
