Welcome to the Chester Land Trust Website!


Chester is blessed with fresh water streams, tidelands, natural and man-made lakes, and state, town and water company forests. Once a thriving mill town with access to the majestic waterway of the Connecticut River, its economic base has changed, but its environment remains surprisingly unspoiled. The Chester Land Trust wants to keep it that way. The open spaces are limited. They need preservation and judicious protection. Existing biological diversity and natural habitats are finite, and if destroyed, are irreplaceable.  


The Chester Land Trust is a non profit organization which exists to conserve and preserve our town's fragile and unique environment. Being within the Connecticut River Valley, our charge is not only conserving land, but, also managing our impact upon the Connecticut River.
