Stamford, CT - The Stamford Land Conservation Trust (“SLCT”) announces acquisition of its 55th nature preserve, located on Wallenberg Drive in North Stamford. This new preserve provides valuable wooded habitat for wildlife, including a seasonal vernal pool. Seasonal wetlands provide valuable and irreplaceable habitat for a wide variety of amphibians in a relatively predator free setting. The Wallenberg Drive acquisition not only preserves open space threatened by development, it is nearly contiguous to the Trust’s existing Birch Meadow Preserve and provides a growing ecosystem critical for many species.

Of historical significance, this property was the subject of landmark litigation that helped define legal protections for vernal pools in Connecticut.
