Land Types

Land Management Programs fall into seven categories, many of which overlap at individual parcels.

Land Trust

Four properties in CT have been placed into a non-profit conservation and preservation trust to maintain these lands as open space in perpetuity. This gift to the people of Connecticut and the region is believed to be the first large-scale preservation land trust founded by a regulated utility in the United States.

Stone Walls, Skiff MountainForest

Nearly all Eversource conservation properties are wooded, with the exception of agricultural lands. These are managed working forests, with selective timber harvests, in keeping with historic land uses.


Four Eversource properties are managed for wildlife by Eversource and the CT DEEP. Hunting is permitted and administered by the CT DEEP Wildlife Division at the following locations:

  • Kings Island WMA
  • Maromas WMA
  • Skiff Mountain WMA
  • Newgate WMA

Eversource also administers its own, "private land," permit-only hunting program (deer and turkey) on 12 other land parcels representing 2,100 acres. Approximately 350 permits are issued by lottery each year. Applications must be picked up in person at the Eversource General Offices (107 Selden Street, Berlin, CT) from January through March 15. Successful applicants are notified by mail.

Written authorization is also required for those wishing to hunt small game on Eversource’s "private land" properties.
