Property Description

The Atwood Conservation Easements encompass the majority of a working farm that was in the Atwood family for five generations. These easements were donated in 20 acre pieces in 1999 and 2011. The property is situated at the former junction of three Connecticut Blue Trails. The farm’s working forests, wetlands, and open fields provide habitat for a variety of wildlife including declining early successional bird species.

“The conservation of significant parcels of open space like this one is essential for Wolcott to retain its character and appeal. The Atwood Family does a great service for the community by willingly retaining this land as open space. This property is adjacent to a network of uninterrupted forests and this network provides an area of unfragmented habitat for a variety of wildlife.”
