In late December, the CT DEEP announced that the GLCT has been selected to receive a $162,500 grant from the Open Space and Watershed Land Acquisition Grant Program in connection with the acquisition of 32 acres within the forest of Westwoods.
This funding acknowledges the importance of protecting and keeping intact one of the few remaining forested areas of its size along the Connecticut coast. This grant, along with the generous donations from hundreds of members of our community, enables the GLCT to protect this last, central in-holding in Westwoods.
We are greatly honored at this grant announcement, and thank all who have donated. Together, we can and will continue to do what generations of Guilford residents have done, putting our resources together to protect Guilford’s treasured landscape.
