Manchester Land Conservation Trust

The Manchester Land Conservation Trust is a nonprofit, publicly supported organization dedicated to the acquisition, preservation, and maintenance of open space lands and water resources in Manchester and surrounding towns, protecting habitat for animal, bird, and plant life.  

The Trust preserves open-space lands in Manchester, Andover, Bolton, East Hartford, Glastonbury, and Vernon.  We are an all-volunteer organization with a board of directors, officers, committees, and several hundred members. The Trust accepts donations of undeveloped land as gifts from individuals or businesses, and occasionally buys land which would otherwise be sold for development.

The Trust also solicits money or securities for purchase and maintainance of properties. We own many acres of land, which we maintain for passive recreation (no buildings or lighting, no motor vehicles) and we lead free hikes on the land.

As a private, nonprofit corporation, the Trust can assist land donors and work with them on a property transfer for the conservation of their land in its natural state in perpetuity. The Trust can assist with the services needed for transfer including legal counsel, but we also welcome donations that include a financial gift for counsel, surveying, appraisal, etc.
