BIG NEWS!  A commemorative medallion has been struck for the Ethel Walker Woods of Simsbury.


The design (attached in a line art format) reflects the prominent features of the land - the border reads "Ethel Walker

Woods - Simsbury".  The pendant is approximately 1,1/4" vertical by 3/4" horizontal, available for sale in the following metals:


White and Yellow 14K gold         -  $400.00

Sterling silver                             -  $ 50.00

Bronze                                      -  $ 30.00


The medallion was produced to commemorate the hard work and generosity of all those who made this preservation a reality.  Any money earned will be used to highlight the Ethel Walker Woods of Simsbury through educational programs, and to preserve and protect the remaining acreage in Phase II.


We currently have 12 silver and 10 bronze available from the first run.  Each gold medallion order requires a deposit of $50.  

For items in stock or future orders: email -  - please note "medallion" in your subject.


IMPORTANT!!  We are in the process of reorganizing the Keep the Woods website and email distribution.  

These emails have a broad geographic distribution and after September will continue approximately once a month.  We will also set up a separate email list to send periodic emails specific for in-town issues in Simsbury


If you want to be sure to also receive in-town emails specific to Simsbury, reply and I will add you to the “in-town” list.
