Weantinoge Announces West Aspetuck Headwaters Preserve

Weantinoge Heritage Land Trust is pleased to announce it is working with local partners to permanently protect a fifteen-acre waterfront preserve at the headwaters of the West Aspetuck Watershed.   The soon-to-be West Aspetuck Headwaters Preserve is located on North Spectacle Lake in Kent, CT.  It boasts hemlock forest, critical wetlands, and habitat for diverse wildlife, including wading birds, turtles, and fox.  The preserve is included in the State of Connecticut’s Natural Diversity Database as a potential location of endangered, threatened, and special concern species.  North Spectacle Lake itself is known for its excellent bass fishing.  Thanks to interim bridge financing, the land trust is now working with partners to raise the remaining funds needed to purchase the property and place it under permanent conservation protection.

For more information, please contact, Catherine Rawson, Executive Director, phone: 860-927-1927 or email: catherine@weantinoge.org
