The Wallace Barnes Nature Trail
One of a kind in the state of Connecticut! The Wallace Barnes Nature Trail begins construction soon. This soon to be one mile-long nature trail will be fully accessible to people using wheelchairs, strollers, walkers and other mobility devices.
We’ve done it again! Thanks to over flowing support, ELCCT has successfully secured an additional 63.9 acres of land in Bristol and Burlington.
A new, public trail, bringing hikers along the esker of Pigeon Hill, will open on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22nd, 2023!
For over 50 years we have dedicated ourselves to preserve the integrity of the natural character of Bristol and Burlington, Connecticut.
Since our start in 1969, we have protected 14 different properties totaling over 750 acres.
