Thankful for Scenic designation

Print More

I am a kayaker and a hiker who travels the Farmington River in the warm seasons and walks on trails that run along the Salmon Brook just about every day.

Good news arrived in a newsletter from Senator Chris Murphy this week. I celebrate the fact that after 10 years of working to protect two of Connecticut’s most beautiful natural resources, the Lower Farmington River and Salmon Brook Wild and Scenic Act has passed in Congress with bipartisan support and signed into law by President Trump.

Congratulations to everyone who worked to bring this to fruition. I am sure the wildlife, birds and wild plants that frequent those waterways and their banks will be just as grateful as I am, maybe even more grateful, since their lives depend on that habitat.

A wonderful gift for a beautiful Spring day!

Thank you,

Laura Mazza-Dixon
