The New Roxbury Land Trust has been awarded a $50,000 grant from Summer Hill Foundation and a $10,000 grant from Fields Pond Foundation.  The awards will go toward the purchase of 84 acres in Union. 
The land is located within a highly intact forest block in northeastern Connecticut, part of the federally designated National Heritage Corridor known as The Last Green Valley (TLGV).  It will create a linking corridor between the approximately 9000-acre Nipmuck State Forest and privately protected lands in Union and Woodstock.
