Whenever possible, the Environmental Learning Centers of Connecticut strives to protect additional property that serves to preserve the integrity of our existing properties or enhance the natural character of Bristol, Burlington, and other surrounding towns.
Starting with its first 40-acre property in 1969, ELCCT’s landholdings now consist of over 750 acres over 14 preserves and sanctuaries.

These properties would not be possible without the generous support and foresight of property owners, individuals and foundations. Much more can be done. If you are interested in protecting open space through a donation, conservation easement or bargain sale, please contact Executive Director, Scott Heth to learn more about the process and potential tax incentives.
