Come Visit Topsmead!

The "Secret Garden" of Connecticut State Parks & Forests

Announcing the Friends of Topsmead Foundation

TOPSMEAD IS IN TROUBLE!  Like all Connecticut state-funded institutions, the park is running out of money. Cut-backs in personnel and shortening of hours mean the gardens and grounds can no longer by kept up to their previous high standard. That's where we the people have to step in!


GREAT NEWS!
CONNECTICUT STATE PARKS & FORESTS IS TAKING THE LEAD
TO CREATE A FRIENDS OF TOPSMEAD FOUNDATION

                Here is their appeal: 

Friends of Topsmead State Forest, Inc. 

A small group of volunteers has been working since November 2017 to create a non-profit 501(c)3 friends organization.   They are in the final stages of this process and look forward to completing their work soon.   Watch here for upcoming details on a general community/membership meeting planned for the autumn of 2018.
