CT Forestry: Past, Present, and Future is co-sponsored by Connecticut Forest & Park Association and the Wesleyan student group WesCFPA. 

WesCFPA works to maintain trails and to promote environmental conservation both on the Wesleyan campus as well as in the community. They also coordinate events such as film screenings, expositions and lectures, and collaborate with other groups on the Wesleyan campus to expand understanding of the outdoors. Working closely with the Connecticut Forest & Parks Association, WesCFPA volunteers have hands-on experiences that work to create a strong and lasting community partnership.
