Groton Open Space Association

Conservation, and environmental preservation of open space and recreational areas in Southeastern Connecticut
Help GOSA Save Center Groton Preserve in Perpetuity
Center Groton Preserve, an 89-acre forested property located off Route 117 and Phillips Avenue within the Center Groton neighborhood, is GOSA’s latest acquisition project that will extend and connect our existing 305-acre Avery Farm Nature Preserve and 91-acre Candlewood Ridge properties and offer trails that highlight its unique features and extend across the properties for long-distance hiking loops.
Land, Water and Wildlife

Established in 1967, Groton Open Space Association protects and preserves our local forests, streams, and wildlife by acquiring, improving, and maintaining open space properties. These spaces are made available to the community for passive recreation, education, and to foster an appreciation of nature.
