Why protect our land and waterways?

Clean water.

Waterlife survives in clean  streams and vernal pools such as these at Chapman Pond Preserve.

Preserved open space helps protect habitats of stream-dwelling shiners (upper photo), vernal pool dwelling tadpoles (lower photo), and other waterlife.

To give you access to natural areas

EHLT partners with municipal and state government, and other conservation groups to preserve open spaces for all to enjoy.

This footbridge over the Eightmile River in East Haddam's Chapal Farm Open Space, built mostly through EHLT volunteer labor, is a perfect example of multi-agency cooperation.

Preserved lands bring value to many aspects of life - exercise and adventure, wildlife observation, education and study, personal rejuvenation, and property values. Read more: "Economic Value of Protected Open Space"

Sheepskin Hollow PreserveSince 1979, your investments helped East Haddam Land Trust, a volunteer, non-profit land conservation corporation, preserve unique woodlands, fields, lakes, rivers and open spaces.
