Boots and Bark Podcasts

Boots & Bark is the podcast of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA), a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting forests, parks, and trails for future generations through connecting people to the land. This podcast features special people who are making a difference in conservation and outdoor recreation for Connecticut, and we plan on producing 12 episodes each year.

IT'S BACK!!! This family-friendly event is free and open to the public on Saturday, May 12th. Details are still being finalized, but save the date.
The end of the year is always a great time to reflect on what has been accomplished. Here are some of the great things that happened for your forests, parks, and trails thanks to your support and involvement. Thank you!
Over the last year, CFPA's Board, staff, members, and volunteers worked to develop the future path of the Association. Learn about what we developed and, please, let us know what YOU think!
