Oct. 11 declared Aspetuck Land Trust Day in Fairfield

Fairfield First Selectman Mike Tetreau shown above presents Aspetuck Land Trust’s Executive Director David Brant with a proclamation officially declaring October 11 as “Aspetuck Land Trust Day” in Fairfield. The Land Trust is celebrating its 50th Anniversary year of preserving open space in Fairfield County.

“The Town of Fairfield congratulates Aspetuck Land Trust on celebrating its 50-year anniversary. This Land Trust is a vital asset to our community through its dedicated work in preserving local open spaces that residents are encouraged to explore and learn more about,”said Tetreau. Aspetuck Land Trust’s steadfast commitment and foresight to preserve our land will have a major impact on the lives of residents for years to come.”

Executive Director Brant added that, “People need open space for their mental and physical health. The Land Trust preserves big and small open spaces and each has value for people and wildlife. We recently preserved a nearly 1-acre building lot across from Southport Beach with the help of the Southport Conservancy and local neighbors, protecting this property from development.”

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 spanning 1,800 acres. Nearly 1,000 individuals support the Land Trust through annual tax-deductible membership contributions.
