The Nature Conservancy has been working in the Connecticut River landscape for more than 40 years. The Conservancy's first land acquisition in the watershed was 46 acres at Burnham Brook in East Haddam, Ct., in 1960. To date, the organization has protected nearly a quarter-million acres in the watershed, including the 4th Connecticut Lake, which serves as the headwaters to the Connecticut River.

This site is part of the Connecticut River Paddlers Trail, which includes campsites, access points, and portage trails along the river.
