Great Meadows Conservation Trust, Inc.
Conservation Trust was incorporated
in 1968 by concerned citizens of Wethersfield, Rocky Hill and
Glastonbury as a non-profit tax exempt land trust to protect
and preserve the Great Meadows. We wish to save the floodplain's
vital agricultural, scenic, archeological and wetland resources,
and are committed to working with like-minded groups and landowners.
are organized to acquire land and negotiate conservation easements.
We interact with state and local governments about decisions
affecting the meadows, believing that the intrinsic value of
the land must be high on the public agenda. Read our Mission
