Caring for our World here at Home

Essex Land Trust preserves are open to the public for non-commercial, passive recreational use from dawn to dusk on all days, subject to the limitations set forth below.

Private and Other Use

An approved permit is required for use of our preserves by any non Essex Land Trust group with planned attendance of 10 or more individuals or if a donation is suggested or required. Permits must be returned to the land trust at least 2 weeks before the event date.  Events cannot be announced until after the permit request has been approved in writing.  Land trust approval of use of a preserve does not ensure exclusive use. Use of our preserves may be restricted when reserved for private use. Dates and times of restricted use will be posted on the preserve.  Users are responsible for removal of all trash and leaving the preserves in the same state as when they arrived.
