Highstead Arboretum leads regional effort to protect forests, open space – NewsTimes.com: “Bill Toomey — the director of the Highstead Arboretum — and Bill Labich — Highstead Arboretum’s regional conservationist — envision finding ways to preserve the crucial, narrow links of forested and open space land, and all the good it does for the region, whether providing habitat for wildlife or trails to give people exercise.

They are now taking the first steps to do that by creating the Western Fairfield County Regional Conservation Partnership — a coalition of town land trusts and conservation commissions in Bethel, Danbury, Newtown, Redding and Ridgefield.”
