Welcome to Redding Land Trust

Students from John Read Middle School participate in outdoor workshop at the Saugatuck Nature Area. Redding Land Trust supports educational outreach in the community to encourage the next generation of land stewards.


Redding Land Trust was founded in 1965 by a small group of forward-thinking volunteers whose goal was a simple one: preserve the natural beauty of their town. That goal has not changed over the years and today the Redding Land Trust is the steward of more than 1700 acres of prime open space—woodlands and wetlands, splashing streams and quiet ponds, sweeping vistas across open meadows—all kept safe for generations to come.

We couldn’t have done it without those who have put their land in trust with us over the decades, without the hundreds of Redding citizens who donate money each year so we can fulfill our mission of preserving the natural areas of Redding and adjoining towns—or without the dozens of volunteers who clear and maintain more than 60 miles of trails that wind through some of the most beautiful scenery in Connecticut.

2015 was our 50th Anniversary year and we have much to celebrate. We hope you will join us. Together we can keep Redding a unique green oasis amid the constant pressure of encroaching urban sprawl.
