Keep the Woods shares science and emerging policies on clean water and natural forest ecosystems for climate, biodiversity and public health. We also share the history of the preservation of the Ethel Walker Woods of Simsbury, a community forest atop a town aquifer.
Our ~10 year successful campaign to preserve the entirety of the Ethel Walker Woods is archived here. An abridged historical news archive is on the right side of this page.
We are always open to submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org. We help efforts and organizations that align explcitly with our mission. Contact us, and check out our current list on our suggestions to Take Action
We share interdisciplinary science and relevant information that ranges from local (most often Simsbury, CT) to regional (usually Southern New England) to national/international. We try to reach all levels when we recommend that you Take Action.
Our goal is to facilitate rapid translation of science into multisolving public policies that “first do no harm.” A network of nature held in the public trust serves the public good. We need natural areas for evolution, science, education and our best future.
