Since 1966, Lyme Land Conservation Trust has been conserving the unique and historic landscapes of Lyme, Connecticut.  During those years, our rural community has shown that a small population can have a giant impact.  Residents and friends of Lyme have donated land, dollars, and lots of hard work to acquire and protect almost 3000 acres of woodlands, craggy hills, working farm fields, and bird-filled marshes. The more we accomplish, the more we need your support.
