Lyme Land Conservation Trust

The Lyme Land Conservation Trust was founded in 1966 to conserve the natural, scenic, and historic land and water resources of Lyme, Connecticut. The organization maintains hiking trails and leases agricultural lands; acquires and manages properties; promotes scientific study of natural resources; and hosts educational events for its members and the public. Of the New England cottontail restoration effort and the Young Forest Project, LLCT Environmental Director Sue Cope says: "Providing and protecting habitat for wildlife is a key part of the LLCT mission, and we believe these habitat restoration initiatives are essential to the future of wildlife conservation."
