1000 Acre Preserve (Photograph © Bob Lorenz)  The 1000 acre preserve is a unique geological formation that serves as a watershed for three important water sources. There has been a attempt to develop this area and the Connecticut Fund for the Environment wants you to understand what is at stake for our region if we allow this plan to move forward.
