Weantinoge Heritage Land Trust
Since 1965, Weantinoge Heritage Land Trust has actively protected land in Connecticut's northwest corner. Weantinoge quickly grew into a regional organization that is now the largest land trust in Connecticut--protecting over 9,000 acres in 17 communities from Newtown to Canaan. Some of our properties have been designated as wildlife sanctuaries; some as farmland, and others as "forever wild." Many are for the recreational pleasure of the public, providing hiking, birding, and fishing opportunities. Most importantly, each property helps to define our sense of place and protect the rural character and quality of life in our communities.
