About us

Highstead is a nonprofit organization that works to conserve the forested landscape of New England through science, sound stewardship, collaboration, and innovative conservation. Highstead plays a lead role in advancing the New England-wide Wildlands and Woodlands (W&W) Initiative, which seeks to conserve at least 70% of the regional landscape as forests. Locally, Highstead uses its 100-plus natural area to educate and inspire people about the natural world through educational programs, research, sound management, and an interpretive trail system. Highstead works with local partners to help protect the natural and rural character of Fairfield County and works with more than 100 W&W partners to double the pace of conservation across New England.
