Views from Jarvis Creek Farm

Located on the south side of historic and scenic Route 146, the 20-acre Jarvis Creek Farm property is part of an unusually large, environmentally sensitive, protected coastal area on the Branford-Guilford border.

Over the last four decades, the Branford Land Trust, Guilford Land Conservation Trust, Yale University, and the Town of Branford have together assembled this natural preserve, almost 1,100 acres, that covers much of the watersheds of Hoadley and Jarvis Creeks.

If one were so inclined, one could walk from the center of Stony Creek east towards the Guilford town line, and north to I-95 on trails that cross protected salt marsh, farmland, old quarries, and one of the largest sections of relatively unfragmented coastal forest between here and the New York border — almost entirely on protected open space.

With your continued support, we will able to maintain and steward these natural places that provide places for recreation, research and education, that offer critical fish and wildlife habitat, and that enhance the environmental integrity of our shoreline for future generations.
