In 1996, the
Branford Land Trust joined forces with the Guilford Land Conservation
Trust to preserve the Pinchot Property [seen above]. This 47 acre
tract represents the southernmost part of over 600 acres of protected
open space in Branford and Guilford that stretches from Leetes Island
Road to I-95.
This type of
preservation effort is just one of the many activities of the Branford
Land Trust that assures the protection of open space in Branford.
From investigating available open space for acquisition to maintaining
our properties, the Land Trust continually works at protecting our
natural resources for future generations of Branford residents.
