The Windham Land Trust was founded by a small group of conservation minded Windham residents who came together to protect a parcel of land slated to become a 41-house subdivision. This land, where streams come together to form the Black Brook, would become the Black Brook Preserve. Today, the Preserve, is a vital habitat for wildlife, boasts numerous hiking trails, and is an important educational resource for children in the community.
Still in its first decade of operation, the Windham Land Trust has managed to protect over 341 acres of valuable open space in our community. Forests, wetlands, meadows, and land used for farming and forestry will be protected from development forever. WLT is dedicated to working within our community to aquire, preserve, and steward open space.
