At Candlewood Valley Regional Land Trust, we seek to protect properties which are fragile or at risk for becoming overdeveloped. We steward properties to protect their natural resources in perpetuity, and we provide education so everyone can learn how to protect and steward our lands together.
We offer opportunities to connect with nature and each other.
Our overall strategic vision is to create greenways across the towns that make up our land trusts; to work with other land trusts so these green corridors cross our entire state. Why? Because greenways are healthy, and land knows no boundaries.
Candlewood Valley Regional Land Trust was formed by the merger of two land trusts in Danbury and New Fairfield combining 516 acres of protected land and more than 45 years of working history. As one collaborative land trust, we have become an organization with an enhanced ability to protect and steward our lands.
We are an accredited land trust. This is a hard-won seal of approval for our history of working in the Candlewood Valley region to protect the natural resources, wildlife habitat, and open vistas that our residents have come to appreciate. We are a stronger organization for having gone through the rigorous accreditation program. This strength will help make Candlewood Valley an even better place for current and future generations.
Local community foundations like Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation, the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain, the Connecticut Community Foundation and others appreciate the value of nonprofit leader professional development and well-being. They work with consultants to develop these kinds of programs, and often offer scholarship opportunities for those who don’t have the budget.
Our land supports all forms of life; it is a natural habitat
to animals and a fundamental resource for humans. It is a crucial part to the
production of what we need to sustain life. Whatever the environment means to
you, don’t take it for granted.
We believe in protecting and conserving the world’s natural
beauty so not only you can enjoy it, but future generations as well. The open
spaces that the environment offers us are vital to our existence and we need to
take care of them in perpetuity.
