We look forward to seeing you, your family, and friends out exploring the nature of Windham County at any of our nature preserves. Some of our locations don't have trails; nature has the lead, but the adventurous are welcome to visit. The following locations, however, offer easy access and parking. Some offer walking paths. Remember, take only pictures; leave only footprints. For all to enjoy; for all to cherish.
"One thing that unites us as a nation is land: Americans strongly support saving the open spaces they love. Since 1975, the Wyndham Land Trust has been doing just that for the people of Northeast Connecticut. Now the Wyndham Land Trust announced it has achieved national recognition – joining a network of over 400 accredited land trusts across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to professional excellence and to maintaining the public’s trust in their work."
What do skunk cabbage, salamanders, mountain laurel, fireflies, bats, stunning views, eagles and fresh air have in common? They are just some of the topics set for Wyndham Land Trust’s Wee Wanders in 2019. They will be hosted on easy to access preserves, where one and all can easily wander. Walk leader and WLT volunteer Marcy Dawley encourages all ages and abilities to come out.

“Whether you have tiny legs, slow legs, unsteady legs, or even a walker, stroller or cane, you will be able to manage to wander at these select locations. * Age is no barrier. WLT welcomes wee and not-so-wee, young and young-at-heart to come outside for some fresh air. * It'll take just a wee amount of your time - an hour or 2 at best. Science proves the power of fresh air! * Heck, you can even sit in your car and simply enjoy the views, smells, sounds if that is better for you.”
