Founded in 1965 to benefit the general public through the conservation of natural areas, fish and wildlife, and working farmland, Weantinoge Heritage Land Trust is the largest land trust in Connecticut and the 18th largest in the United States by the number of lands we conserve.

Over our 50 plus year history, Weantinoge has permanently protected more than 10,000 acres in 17 communities throughout Northwest Connecticut. The organization’s protected lands include designated wilderness areas, 29 working farms, streambelts, viewsheds, critical watershed lands, and 12 nature preserves open to the public with 18 miles of hiking trails.
