CFPA strives to facilitate strong connections between Connecticut residents and the forests and parks of our state. We offer educational programs for children, youth, families and adults, coordinate the award-winning Project Learning Tree (PLT) curriculum, and train volunteers to lead "Rambles" (guided hikes). Join CFPA as we explore the hidden gems of Connecticut’s forests!
