Connecticut Woodlands

Since 1936, the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) has published Connecticut Woodlands. This well-respected quarterly magazine is a benefit currently reserved for members and supporters of CFPA. Pictured is the cover of our Winter 2018 edition of Connecticut Woodlands.  

If you would like to read through previously published editions of Connecticut Woodlands to get a flavor of this terrific magazine, take a look at our "page-turner" versions (starting with Winter 2018) or  download older issues from our archive in PDF format. If you like what you read (and if you haven't already found a way to support CFPA), please take a moment to join CFPA, or make a donation to support our ongoing conservation work.

Each issue of Connecticut Woodlands is full of stories written by a diverse and continually changing group of authors. If you have ideas for new stories, want to comment on something you've read, or if you would like to contribute your own stories, photos, etc., please contact the Editor of Connecticut Woodlands, Timothy Brown, via tbrown@ctwoodlands.org
