Future Events of Interest

ECFLA/WDLT organizes several events throughout the year, mostly in the spring, summer and fall months. Check back here for upcoming programs.

Eastern Connecticut Forest Landowners Association
and Wolf Den Land Trust invite you to:

A Twilight Tour of Tim Dodge and family 35 acre forest in Woodstock.
Learn about a recent Conservation Easement and long-range property
stewardship practices on the Dodge family property.

Wednesday, August 23rd, 6:00 p.m.

Join us for an informative twilight tour of Tim Dodge’s 35 acres forest property in Woodstock. Last year Tim completed a Conservation Easement for his property with ECFLA. The program will start with an explanation of how Tim and his family decided a Conservation Easement was the way to go for long-term protection of their land. He will describe what the easement does and does not contain. Copies of the pertinent parts of the easement and maps of the property will be provided. 

Following the discussion about the Conservation Easement we’ll walk the land following a trail that Tim laid out. Along the way we’ll see Safford Brook, and learn about timber harvest practices from 1985-1986, passive recreation, quarry history, issues with invasive species, and concerns of the Emerald Ash Borer.

Coffee and ice tea will be available.

RSVP to Bill Reid by calling 774-262-3284 or e-mail wbr655@yahoo.com
