Our Mission is to: “Inspire the appreciation and enjoyment of nature, through education and conservation, fostering a healthy environment and an improved quality of life”.
ELCCT offers a diversity of hands-on experiential programs using a variety of resources and facilities.
Our programs are offered at the Indian Rock Nature Preserve, the Harry C. Barnes Memorial Nature Center and in the schools of Connecticut. Annually we provide our environmental educational programs to over 20,000 children and families from over 70 Connecticut communities!
In addition to our education programs, ELCCT also serves as a land trust and has protected over 750 acres of land in Bristol, Southington and Burlington, Connecticut.
