At the behest of the local community, The Trust for Public Land is working to protect 980 acres of forestland and create the new Bethel Community Forest. Our success will expand and diversify local recreational opportunities, unlock access to an additional 2,500 acres of public land, and empower a community through local ownership and management of the land.

Located only two miles from the heart of Bethel Village, the property is one of the last large tracts of undeveloped land in town. Its protection will safeguard Bethel's economic, natural, and recreational resources and will unite the community around a new, shared asset.
