Described by Aspetuck Land Trust executive director David Brant as  part of the last frontier of open space in our area,” the Belknap Preserve was purchased in 2017 by the land trust with a mix of private and public contributions including a grant from the CT DEEP Open Space and Watershed Land Acquisition Program (OSWA).

The 38.35-acre preserve is adjacent to Aspetuck’s 81-acre Honey Hill Preserve and is part of 2,600 acres of land owned by the Wilton Land Conservation Trust, Aspetuck, The Nature Conservancy, and the towns of Wilton and Weston. Join us July 11 to explore this preserve with members of the land trust, state legislators, and community leaders.
