Our Protected Places

Of the over 800 acres currently held by the DRLT, many parcels (from under two acres to some more than one hundred acres) have been donated by conservation-minded families and individuals.  These open spaces have been entrusted to the DRLT for all to enjoy.  We maintain these spaces and places through a combination of our members and other community-minded groups and individuals, including the Boy Scouts of America.
Below you will see a listing of our open space parcels.  Each listing has a map link.  

Please visit and enjoy these spaces.  

Take only pictures, and leave only footprints.
