As a land trust we have plans to take a more proactive role in saving the last remaining open spaces before they are developed and gone forever. The time to act is now. Our vision is "to create a healthier community by establishing a Green Corridor that connects and engages our communities and safeguards our land, wildlife and water resources for future generations."
We are now developing a detailed plan to create a 18,000 acre Green Corridor to enlarge and further protect our region's treasured open space. The Green Corridor will extend through Fairfield, Westport, Weston, Easton, Wilton and Redding.
The Green Corridor has two major components:
Conserving and preserving undeveloped strategically located land parcels in the six town region by either purchasing them or receiving them as donations.
Educating and motivating landowners (including homeowners) both large and small, to employ conservation and preservation best practices for improving the ecological health of their properties to extend the overall benefits and beauty of the Green Corridor.
Everyone can make a difference, whether it’s donating land or taking care of it in a more sustainable way.
