Candlewood Valley Regional Land Trust
Danbury & New Fairfield
How exciting! The Land Trust of Danbury and the New Fairfield Land Trust have merged together to form the bigger, stronger, better… Candlewood Valley Regional Land Trust!
Here’s what I’m sayin’
Merging our two land trusts together created a stronger and more diverse organization than standing alone. What the Land Trust of Danbury cannot offer, the New Fairfield Land Trust can and vice versa. We have found an important balance between properties that are solely acquired for conservation purposes with limited access and properties that allow patrons to enter freely. We felt that each land trust brought to the table different pieces of the puzzle, that now merged, cohesively fit together. The New Fairfield Land Trust has a number of preserves and trails that offer beautiful scenery and a great hike, while some of the Land Trust of Danbury properties include two farms and acreage that although beautiful, does not offer access to the public.
