ELT, entirely supported by volunteers, has been a leader in the area for eradication of invasive plants and supporting fish populations. It actively manages more than 900 acres of town open space, including its 23 preserves with more than 55 trails maintained with 2,000 volunteer hours annually. Amongst other accomplishments, ELT has collaborated to install fishways on two dams on Falls River, expanded open space corridors such as the 1,000-acre Preserve, protected the Essex Great Meadows, and raised public awareness of ospreys by a live stream from its OspreyCam on Thatchbed Island.
Founded in 1935 by Middletown philanthropist Clarence S. Wadsworth, The Rockfall Foundation is one of Connecticut’s oldest environmental organizations. The foundation supports environmental education, conservation, and planning initiatives in the Lower Connecticut River Valley through public programs and grants. In addition, The Rockfall Foundation operates the historic deKoven House Community Center, which offers meeting rooms and office space for non-profit organizations.
