Welcome to the Meriden Land Trust

Our mission statement:

The Meriden Land Trust is an all-volunteer non-profit team committed to the conservation of Meriden’s natural landscapes and green spaces, from woodlands to farmlands to trap rock ridges, including our trail system, for the protection of our wildlife, the preservation of our history, and the enjoyment of all citizens.

We invite you to attend our meetings and share your ideas.

Upcoming Event: Native Species Gardening – How to Save the Bees, Butterflies and Everything

Aug 18 at 6pm, City Park, 117 Park Ave., Meriden

Join us to see an example of a native plant garden established at City Park by Mary Jean Giannetti, MLT board member and local science teach. You’ll learn how something as simple as including a native plant for your own garden will support native pollinator populations. The event is free. We will have membership forms available if you would like to become a supporting member of the Meriden Land Trust: $25 for an individual, or $30 for a family.
