Aspetuck Land Trust holds 50th anniversary celebration

More than 200 people gathered at the Pequot Library Auditorium on Sept. 16 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Aspetuck Land Trust (ALT). Since 1966, the land trust has conserved and protected more 1,700 acres in Easton, Fairfield, Weston and Westport.

ALT members heard noted Adirondack Mountain Naturalist, Author and Photographer Edward Kanze speak on “The Enormous Value of the Small.” They also watched the premiere of “Barlow’s Dream,” a video narrated by Lissy Newman, daughter of longtime ALT supporters Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman, which examines the land trust’s history and the challenges it still faces.
