What started out nearly a decade ago as a plan to generate money to help build a new library in Willington has led to the preservation of 531 acres in Mansfield and Willington.

The Connecticut Forest & Park Association, Norcross Wildlife Foundation and the University of Connecticut recently announced a land conservation transaction that will preserve the acreage through a series of conveyances and easements. The 300-acre Moss Forest Tract and 96-acre North Property in Willington and 135-acre Albert E. Moss Sanctuary in Mansfield will be preserved under what is known as the Fenton River Watershed Forest and Trail Conservation Project.
