Do you wonder what is crawling under leaf litter or what is in the pond at Highlawn Forest? Do you perhaps need help in identifying invasive species such as Asian Bittersweet, Multiflora Rose or poison ivy? Just ask any one of our 5 new CFPA Junior Conservation Ambassadors for help! They would be glad to answer these questions and teach you even more about Connecticut’s forests.

Since 1929, avid Connecticut hikers have enjoyed access to nature via the CFPA Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails System. Since the 1990s, however, the benefits of trails have notably reached far beyond the hiking and outdoors community. Recognizing that trails provide health, education, and economic benefits, more and more interest groups are embracing the use and stewardship of footpaths.

It is with my sincere appreciation and that of our many Coverts Cooperators, that Eric Hammerling and the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, working with a very generous anonymous donor, are now providing key support to the Coverts Project and the 2014 Coverts Project Seminar. This long-standing educational program enjoys an outstanding record of accomplishment in forest and wildlife habitat stewardship, having educated hundreds of landowners and others over the course of its 30-year history.
We are currently planning the 2014 Coverts Project Seminar program and invite interested people to apply.
