The 1000 acre forest, known as “The Preserve”

Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced today a plan for the state to play a major role in purchasing and protecting the 1,000-acre parcel of open space in Old Saybrook, Essex, and Westbrook along the Long Island Sound known as The Preserve.

“We will take action to make funds available for the state’s participation in the purchase of the property and to address issues concerning joint ownership and stewardship of the land with the Town of Old Saybrook, which will also be making a significant financial contribution,” said Governor Malloy. “The permanent protection of The Preserve has been a goal of the land conservation community across our state for more than 15 years and it’s time to act to achieve this important goal.”
