The Trust for Public Land and the New Canaan Land Trust have an immediate opportunity to protect the six-acre New Canaan property of Jim and Betsey Fowler - the place they called home for more than 30 years. This land provides critical access to the neighboring 41-acre Kelley Upland Sanctuary that meets its boundary through Still Pond, teeming with frogs, ducks, and other significant wildlife. We are working to raise $1.3 million to permanently protect this natural treasure enhancing our unique quality of life through improved access to a local greenbelt, where people of all ages can hike, bird watch, catch frogs, and connect with nature. Together we can protect New Canaan's woodlands and natural charm for future generations and help retain the essence of what makes this region unique.
