Join us and our co-host, Avalonia Land Conservancy, to visit a land conservation success story in the making made possible by the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection’s Open Space & Watershed Land Acquisition Program (OSWA) - funded by the Community Investment Act - and other state, federal, and local investments. Avalonia will acquire this 250 acre forested parcel later this year, connecting it the Great Oak Greenway, the largest trail system in Southeastern CT! 

Park at the Nathan Lester House, where the group will meet before hitting the trail through beautiful woodlands!

Enjoy an informal afternoon strolling the trails in the fresh air with state legislators, other elected officials, land trust representatives, and community leaders. These events are free and open to land trust members and others interested in discussing your state, regional, and local conservation priorities and celebrating land conservation success stories around the state.
