Aspetuck Land Trust offers official Monarch butterfly Waystation

Aspetuck Land Trust’s Sasqua Wildflower Preserve located next to the Pequot Library on Westway Road in Southport is now an official Monarch Waystation.


The Preserve provides Milkweed, nectar sources and shelter to help sustain Monarch butterflies as they migrate through North America.

Aspetuck Land Trust (ALT) is a local non-profit land conservation organization founded in 1966 to preserve open space in the towns of Westport, Weston, Fairfield and Easton. ALT preserves provide passive recreation and educational opportunities for people to learn about and enjoy nature, while preserving the flora and fauna and rural characteristics of local communities. ALT maintains 45 trailed nature preserves and other conservation-only properties on more than 1,700 acres of land. ALT has 900+ local members who support the organization through annual membership contributions.
