Looking Forward - Where the Vision Leads Us

Disconnection from the land is the BIG problem of our time, and re-connection to forests, parks, and trails is the BIG challenge that CFPA and supporters must work to address together. 

There are numerous, well-known physical and mental health benefits from time spent outdoors. For example, a simple walk outdoors combats osteoporosis, reduces depression and anxiety, and improves your quality of life.

Unfortunately, there is also a lot of evidence that people are becoming less connected to the outdoors .  We cannot just watch this happen in Connecticut, we must act together now!

It will take significant financial and human resources to turn this trend around, and "Today's Land - Tomorrow's Legacy" was developed to do just that.

There are three primary Strategies in "Today's Land - Tomorrow's Legacy," click on each icon below to learn more:

There are many Actions grouped under each strategy that we plan to implement with your support.
