Environmental Education

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!


Throughout our trails, forests and educational programs, CFPA strives to acknowledge and welcome all gender identities.
CFPA acknowledges we are on the traditional lands of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation, the Mohegans, the Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke, Golden Hill Paugussett, Nipmuc, and Niantic peoples.
