2019: A Year in Review

Windham Students study tadpoles at Goodwin Forest.

2019 was another banner year for the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) and we couldn't have done it without an amazing community of supporters and volunteers like you. Here's a small snapshot of what you accomplished this year:

  • Our third Summer Trail Crew completed various maintenance projects across Connecticut. Their summer included 14 nights of camping, building 600 feet of bog bridging, multiple trail relocations, and plenty more. To read more about their summer experience, check out our story map.
  • Every Windham 6th and 7th grade student had the opportunity to go on a field trip to Goodwin State Forest and learn about the forest. This year the 7th graders returned for second year of outdoor education, and many 6th graders had their first forest experience like those pictured above.
  • Funding for the Passport to the Parks in the FY 2020-2021 Budget was not diverted by the Connecticut General Assembly. This means that all funding collected through the Passport will continue to support your local State Parks!

  • Management Plans focused on wildlife diversity, forest management, and increased recreation were completed for 3 CFPA properties. A salvage harvest in Field Forest was also completed, which will diversify the ages and species of trees and shrubs in the understory. We also worked with an Eagle Scout to design, build, and install a new property sign in the Field Forest
