about the land trust

The Bethany Land Trust, Inc. is a private, charitable, non-profit corporation dedicated to serving Bethany Connecticut through the conservation of land. Formerly known as the Bethany Conservation Trust, it was established by Bethany residents in 1968 to protect the Trust’s first donation, a 27-acre tract of land that was generously donated by Marion Jenkins.

Since that time, the Trust has acquired 13 other parcels in outright fee ownership and accepted 13 conservation easements, bringing the total acreage under its protection to about 420 acres.
