James L. Goodwin Forest & Park Center


The Association is headquartered at the James L. Goodwin Forest & Park Center on Route 66 in Middlefield, Connecticut.  The Center houses office space for Association staff, a library and a large meeting room. 

The Camp-Ellsworth Library contains an outstanding collection of forestry, wildlife, trail and other conservation books. The Library also contains bound volumes of Association minutes and records dating back to the early 1900s, folios containing decades of press releases, and bound volumes of Connecticut Woodlands going back to the first volume in 1936.  Volunteer Librarian, Mal Bochner, has managed the library since 2005.

The Center is also home to the Genevieve H. Goodwin Meeting Room, a space that seats 60 people, contains a built-in projection screen and features a working kitchen. In addition, Center grounds include the John R. Camp Outdoor Classroom and Demonstration Forest available to schools and other groups for educational purposes.  The Center has ample parking and is easy to access from Routes 66, 9, 15, I-691, and I-91.
