In the coming months, you’ll be hearing about two properties that will allow the Branford Land Trust to continue its mission of protecting our town’s natural beauty. RED HILL WOODS is a stunning 29-acre parcel at the end of Red Hill Road, just north of 950 acres of protected open space protected by the Branford Land Trust, the Guilford Land Conservation Trust, and the Town of Branford. SPECTACLE ISLAND, just a half mile offshore from Indian Neck, is a bare granite outcrop island west of the historic Thimbles. “Spec” is undeveloped and remains an active nesting area of several species of sea birds, and is a popular resting spot for migrating seals.
Our goal is to raise $200,000 to preserve and protect these two spectacular properties for generations to come!
The Branford Land Trust is committed to protecting both properties, and we need your help! Watch your mailbox for public walks, special events and related fundraising efforts! We cannot do this without you!
Your generous contribution to help us protect Red Hill Woods and Spectacle Island is tax deductible. A donation of $50 or more entitles non-members to a one-year membership in the Branford Land Trust. Donate now…and thank you!
