June is a good time to plant a butterfly garden with native milkweed and other flowers. The monarch butterflies will thank you. Here’s how.
On the Saturday June 4, the Hamburg Bridge Historic District was invaded by many artists with easels for the “Celebrating Lyme’s Beauty” Paint Out. The paintings will be on exhibit and for sale at the Lyme Art Association from July 22 to August 26, 2016. Join us for the opening reception on July 22.

The Tour de Lyme was a big success again this year. The beautiful morning on Sunday, May 15 delivered a record-breaking response from bicycling nature lovers. There were 821 riders of all ages and levels. The many volunteers made the day a joy for all involved. The morning culminated with a celebratory lunch at bucolic Ashlawn Farm. It reminds us why we love Lyme and why the Lyme Land Conservation Trust’s mission to preserve this wonderful landscape is so important. To see pictures of the 2016 event click here.
