Here's just a small sampling of the natural treasures we've helped preserve over the years.

 Fort Trumbull, New London, Connecticut

Fort Trumbull, New London, Connecticut

Fort Trumbull

In 1775 Governor Jonathan Trumbull recommended the building of a fortification at the port of New London to protect the seat of the government of Connecticut. Built on a rocky point of land near the mouth of the Thames River on Long Island Sound, the fort was completed in 1777 and named for Governor Trumbull, who served from 1769 to 1784. In 1781 during the American Revolutionary War, the fort was attacked and captured by British forces under the command of Benedict Arnold.

Waterfront Park

Waterfront Park is exactly what its name implies: a linear park along the New London waterfront that is the site of a number of activities during the year. Various sail and powered vessels of interest tie up at the pier from time to time, including cruise ships. The park offers great views of the lower Thames River and has benches and an open-air pavilion as well as transient dock space. The park offers fishing, a car-top boat launch and is handicap accessible.
