Treasures of Southeastern Connecticut

Our Proud History of Preserving Scenic Woodlands, Farms, the Shoreline and Other Natural Gems

$10.00 off for a limited time.

With its dazzling shoreline, white-sand beaches, lush forests, rolling meadows, pastures, orchards, scenic rivers, pristine lakes and glorious vistas, southeastern Connecticut boasts the most picturesque and varied natural attractions in the Nutmeg State.

Treasures of Southeastern Connecticut looks at the state parks, coastal areas, farms, and other natural areas in this corner of the state. The richly illustrated pictorial book explores both well-known sites and lesser known areas, with passages discussing the history of preserving land in the region as well as the present-day efforts of land trusts and other conservationists.

The book was authored by Steve Fagin, who writes a regular outdoor recreation column for The Day, and Dirk Langeveld, a marketing editor at the newspaper. Several guest authors also contributed including Amby Burfoot, Margarett L. Jones, Kristen Lambert, Beth Sullivan, Sidney Van Zandt, and Christine Woodside.
