Our 55th nature preserve, the Wallenberg Preserve is located on
Wallenberg Drive in North Stamford. This preserve provides
valuable wooded habitat for wildlife, including a seasonal vernal pool.
Seasonal wetlands provide valuable and irreplaceable habitat for a
wide variety of amphibians in a relatively predator-free setting. The Wallenberg Drive acquisition not only preserves open space threatened by development, but it is also nearly contiguous to the Trust’s existing Birch Meadow Preserve and provides a growing ecosystem critical for many species.
Of historical significance, this property was the subject of landmark litigation that helped define legal protections for vernal pools in Connecticut.
The Stamford Land Conservation Trust thanks the Isaac family for their generous donation of this preserve. Placing the acreage under SLCT stewardship ensures the people and wildlife of Stamford will enjoy the benefits of this storied property in perpetuity.
