New Winter Walk!
Start off the New Year in the light of the Super Moon

Monday, January 1, 4:30 pm. As the New Year’s sun sets in the West and the Super Moon rises in the East, meet Jim Woodworth and Bike Walk Wethersfield’s Kevin Sullivan, at the Keeney Center parking lot, 200 Main Street, Old Wethersfield.  Walkers will stroll down Main Street to Wethersfield Cove Park (about 1 mile), walk through the parking lot to the Cove channel, under the I91 overpass and out to the River’s edge. The Super Moon on the breast of the flowing waters will give the luster of mid-day to the river below!

The Great Meadows Conservation Trust 

The Great Meadows 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.

We 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 Statement
