Every 5-10 years, Connecticut residents have the opportunity to help shape the future of our state’s woodlands through participating in the Forest Action Plan public input sessions. The current CT Forest Action Plan, written in 2010 and updated in 2015, acts as a guide for the Division of Forestry and hopefully inspires others to improve and protect Connecticut’s forest resources for future generations. Created in collaboration with many partners and stakeholders, the Forest Action Plan includes an analysis of current forest conditions, identifies threats and concerns, establishes priorities, and lays out strategies and action steps to best plan for the future of your forested landscape.
The Connecticut Forest & Park Association is asking stakeholders attend Roundtable Meetings. There are two types of roundtable discussions: those for natural resources practitioners, and those for the general public. Make sure to sign up for the meeting that’s right for you.

- EASTCONN: Hampton CT
Tuesday, June 11th, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Thursday, June 13th, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
