TLGV Program Update

We encourage you to enjoy the outdoors and explore The Last Green Valley’s close-to-home trails, open spaces and agricultural businesses.

Please be mindful of good social distancing practices and watch our social media feeds for recommended outdoor activities!

TLGV has cancelled all indoor and outdoor meetings, workshops and programs through at least June 15. TLGV’s offices in Danielson are also closed to the public until then. We are continuing to work remotely on behalf of The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. We will be checking voicemails and email daily, however, please know office coverage will be sporadic.

What Is The Last Green Valley?

Welcome to The Last Green Valley

The Last Green Valley is green by day and dark by night. We are a National Heritage Corridor with a rich history in a surprisingly rural landscape. With 84% forest and farm, we are the last swath of dark night sky in the coastal sprawl between Boston and Washington DC.

The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) works for you in the National Heritage Corridor. Together, we can care for it, enjoy it and pass it on!

Do you ever feel like youve stepped back in time on a hike? Were lucky in The Last Green Valley to have places so removed from the hustle and bustle of daily life that its easy to imagine being in some prehistoric world and these photos show us that Jurassic Parks Sr. Ian Malcom was right when he said life finds a way. You could almost imagine some dinosaur munching on the greenery.
