Friends of the Shetucket River Valley Mtg.
Friends of the Shetucket River Valley (FoSHR) is currently assisting in efforts to acquire title to 230 acres of meadow, farmland, and forest habitats known as the Watson Farm. It abuts the Sprague Land Preserve, which is bordered by the Shetucket River. The Watson Farm will be a large and important piece of an expanding preserved area in Connecticut's rural Last Green Valley.
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has committed 60% of the purchase price of the property and has granted a one-year extension to allow time to secure the remainder of the funds, some $150,000. Working with Sprague's Conservation Commission and other groups, FoSRV is seeking the funding through contributions, FoSRV memberships, and other fundraising activities.
FoSRV urgently needs your assistance with the effort. Please consider becoming a member and contributing toward our goal. No donation is too small.
Please join us in this idea development meeting.
