Visiting Our Preserves

trails-day

Every year, we offer a variety of experiences to visit Greenwich Land Trust preserves.  Join us for our seasonal walks which may explore the exciting life in vernal pools, spring and summer wildflowers along streams and in meadows, and the incredible varieties of fungi popping out in the autumn woods. Kayak with us along the Greenwich coastline to explore islands and saltmarsh habitats.   Spend an evening under the stars in one of our meadows as a guest astronomer describes the constellations.  Bring the kids for apple picking at our orchard.

We are increasing the ways that we connect the community with the abundant natural resources and beauty of GLT land. Come enjoy our properties and learn from our conservation experts!
