Join us and our co-host, the Aspetuck Land Trust, to visit a land conservation success story 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. Enjoy an informal afternoon 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. 

 

Purchased in 2017 with a mix of state and non-profit grants and private donations, the Belknap Property expands the Honey Hill Preserve to a total of 119 acres. These forested 38 acres straddle the line between Weston and Wilton, conserving a beautiful part of Fairfield County.
