Catch fish for science!

 141 Chestnut Ridge Rd Bethel CT 06801  See map

The Bethel Land Trust is currently doing a survey of what species live on our preserves. We need your help!


Go fishing at any of our five properties with a fishing area:

  • Imbrogno Preserve (Country Way)
  • Ivy Island (Walters & Chelsea Hts)
  • Libby Kellogg Preserve (across from Meckauer)
  • Mike’s Pond (Chestnut Ridge)
  • Wolfpits

 Get directions on our website.

After you've gone fishing, use this internet form to report what you caught and if you saw any invasive species while fishing.  Bonus: submit a picture of what you caught!


This information will help us better manage the preserve. Reporting invasive species helps us stop them in their tracks before they get established.


All the Bethel Land trust properties are open to public from dawn to dusk every day. Please have a valid CT fishing licence. You may either throw your catch back OR keep it. Please see our fishing page for info on best practices to avoid introducing invasive species to the property.

Great activity for all ages. If you submit a picture of your catch with the report, we may feature the picture on our website!
