Serving Milford, CT, since 1971!

Since our incorporation in 1971, the Milford Land Conservation Trust has been serving as a repository for undeveloped land in Milford, CT, preserving land in its natural state. The Trust has acquired nearly 125 acres of land in Milford that are open to the public for hiking, birding and natural science study.

Milford's protected plants, wildlife, birds and acreage lie in the hands of caring volunteers. Protecting and preserving open space is what we do and we need your help!
