The Manchester Land Conservation Trust (MLCT) is a non-profit, tax-exempt, publicly supported corporation dedicated to the acquisition, preservation, and maintenance of open space lands and water resources in Manchester and surrounding towns. 

The Trust works to protect water resources, habitat, and animal, bird, and plant life in the Trust's natural surroundings. On parcels of sufficient size, the Trust supports passive recreation: hiking, biking, snowshoeing, fishing, birdwatching, and other healthful outdoor activities. We welcome members and supporters. Join online (see menu at left) and come hiking with us!

This web site includes information about the land we own, our activities, history, and upcoming events. If you are interested in donating land, please contact the Trust's President, Malcolm F. Barlow, at 860-646-4081, or Director Terry Parla at 860-643-1823. We welcome the opportunity to provide information to potential donors about the benefits of giving land to the Trust.
