Since its inception, CFPA has been a statewide leader in land protection and management. CFPA is a land trust protecting over 2,000 acres of land across the state through direct ownership and the holding of conservation easements. Our focus is protecting working forests and corridors along the 825-mile Blue-Blazed Hiking Trail System.
