In 1998 the SLT was the recipient of a 39.9 acre piece of natural beauty from the Connecticut Legislature. This preserve features a scenic gorge with a series of waterfalls over which the Spruce Brook flows. South Britain’s Harriet and Walter Koons (a veteran treasurer of the Southbury Land Trust) had long admired the property’s rare plant species and ultimately directed its acquisition by the SLT. Dedicated in 1999, the preserve invites lovers of scenic beauty to hike its trails.

Owned and managed by the Southbury Land Trust. More info at 203-264-4441, or
