Event Description: 

Join us as we celebrate the preservation of Rocky Top in Hamden. Home to one of the first Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails, the Quinnipiac Trail, and the homestead of Edgar Heermance, this special site holds an important place in CFPA and CT history.

Thanks to an amazing community effort from the Rocky Top Neighbors, the support of incredible partners at the Hamden Land Conservation Trust, and countless volunteers, this property is finally free from the threat of development. Help us celebrate this accomplishment as we dedicate this section of trail to Edgar Heermance.

Enjoy hearing from CFPA staff, Hamden Land Conservation Trust members, and family members of the late Edgar Heermance while we dedicate this trail. Stay for the opportunity to visit the homestead of Edgar Hermannce, a short hike from the trailhead on Rocky Top Road. 

Please sign-up below so we can plan accordingly.
