The Mission of the Canton Land Conservation Trust is to acquire, preserve, and protect land of scenic, natural or historic value within the Town of Canton; to maintain this land and its plant and animal life using the best conservation, wildlife habitat, and forestry practices available; and to promote public awareness, understanding, and enjoyment of the land.
We hope you get the chance to visit some of our properties over the summer - it's a great time to hike the trails with the whole family. The next few months are quiet ones as far as organized activities, but we will be back in the fall - stay tuned!
The first half of June was full of activity. There was a bird hike at Mary Conklin led by Sarah Faulkner on June 6, an off-trail hike on Onion Mountain led by Jay Kaplan on June 7, our annual meeting at Pratt Place also in June 7, and the final Trailblazers hike of the season led by Jen Mason and Michelle Winkler on June 14. Thanks to all who volunteered their time or participated, we hope to see you again soon!
We would like to thank Joseph Family Markets, owners of ShopRite of Canton, for their ongoing financial support, and for the employees of ShopRite who participated in a trail crew on April 26.
We would also like to thank the Connecticut Hiking Alliance for their participation in a trail crew on April 18.
