"Last Sunday" Hikes and Canoe/Kayak paddles:

Hikes are scheduled the last Sunday of September through June; most are easy to moderate difficulty.  In July and August, we schedule "Last Sunday" Canoe/Kayak outings. 

Stewardship Work Parties:

generally the third Saturday of the month from September through June - to help with trail and preserve boundary maintenance. Or ... consider being a Preserve steward/monitor to keep an eye on a Preserve, check for boundary issues and, when necessary, complete light trail maintenance.

Swim at Anita's:

Every Monday and Thursday, from 1:30 to 3:00, in the heated indoor swimming pool at Anita Ballek's home.  A donation to the EHLT is collected at the door and is most appreciated.

Annual Meeting:

in January reviews the activities of the land trust, elects new board members, conducts other official business, and features interesting speakers and programs.  

Special Events:

vary from year to year; most are open to the public, some are members-only. We announce all events through email and some specific events, such as the annual meeting, by mail.

    On the third Saturdays of September through June, from 9 am to noon, EHLT schedules Stewardship Saturday to maintain the 500+ acres EHLT oversees in East Haddam.

    Work may include trail maintenance, building trails and/or footbridges, checking boundaries, installing signage, fencing parking areas at new preserves and any other work necessary to keep EHLT trails open for public use. All able-bodied help is welcome!

    The location of each Stewardship Saturday is determined by need and conditions. If weather permits, we plan work somewhere. Watch for updates.
