Description

The Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to connecting people to the land in order to protect forests, parks, walking trails, and open spaces in Connecticut for future generations.

In 2016, CFPA Volunteers dedicated over 29,000 hours, valued at over $805,000, to advocating, educating, monitoring properties, leading recreational programs, and continually improving the 825-miles of Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails.

We envision Connecticut as a place of scenic beauty whose cities, suburbs, and villages are linked by a network of parks, forests, and trails easily accessible for all people to challenge the body and refresh the spirit. We picture a state where clean water, timber, farm fresh foods, and other products of the land make a significant contribution to our economic and cultural well-being. And we hope you will help us in achieving this vision.
