Coronavirus Tip From Hartford Healthcare:
Don't Hide Indoors!
Sunlight actually energizes the body’s T-cells to help fight against infection, and it can also give your body a boost of Vitamin D, which supports the immune system. If you venture into the woods for a hike or mountain bike ride, you can also experience a boost in immune function by breathing in substances like phytoncides produced by woodland plants.

Great Meadows Conservation Trust, Inc.
Conservation Trust was incorporated
in 1968 by concerned citizens of Wethersfield, Rocky Hill and
Glastonbury as a non-profit tax exempt land trust to protect
and preserve the Great Meadows. We wish to save the floodplain's
vital agricultural, scenic, archeological and wetland resources,
and are committed to working with like-minded groups and landowners.
are organized to acquire land and negotiate conservation easements.
We interact with state and local governments about decisions
affecting the meadows, believing that the intrinsic value of
the land must be high on the public agenda. Read our Mission
