GRAHAM BRUSH PRESERVE

Unlike the lakeside conservation easements that also bear his name, the Graham Brush Preserve was not donated by this founding member of the Warren Land Trust. Rather, it was named in his honor after the WLT purchased the land with partial funding from the State of Connecticut's Open Space & Watershed Acquisition Grant Program. The State of Connecticut owns a conservation easement on the parcel as part of the grant acquisition.

This 40-acre parcel off Wintergreen LaneThe land includes one of the highest points in the state, and is mostly heavy hardwood forest intercut with white pine.

Its acquisition marked the first time the Warren Land Trust had successfully navigated a grant from the state as part of our acquisition process.

Shortly after purchase of the land Dorothy Maier contacted Kay Brush, Graham's widow and suggested that the Warren Land Trust honor Graham for his contributions "of time, ideas, money and easements," all of which created the foundation on which the Warren Land Trust is built.
