Preserves & Maps

With over 50 preserves, the Middlesex Land Trust has preserved more than 1000 acres of natural land in northern Middlesex County. With the help of Wesleyan University, Esri/ArcGIS, Clearwater Paper and many volunteers, the Land Trust is currently working on a new Preserve Mapping Project with the goal of mapping our preserves and making location and trial maps available on-line.
