|The West Hartford Land Trust is a nonprofit conservation association dedicated to
protecting and preserving open, undeveloped land in the Town of West Hartford. The West Hartford Land Trust,
a §501(c)(3) organization independent of the Town of West Hartford, was formed through the unanimous
support of the West Hartford Town Council.
Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in our community through acquiring, conserving and preserving
open space in West Hartford.
West Hartford is a wonderful community in which to live, work and play. As a mature inner suburb of the
City of Hartford, West Hartford is vibrant suburban community replete with a diverse mix of homes, businesses
and industry; quality education and town services. However, the town’s growth has left little open space for
Land trusts across the country are saving the face of America as they protect and steward land.
Landowners can permanently protect the conservation value of their land in several ways. They can donate
outright or bequeath land to a land trust. They can donate a conservation easement - a legal agreement that
permanently protects open space while leaving it in private ownership. Among other means of protecting land,
landowners can sell open space land to land trusts in a bargain sale, below market value.
