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!

I love every region, & every county in CT! CT maybe a small state, but it sure packs a powerful punch!

So much to see and do!

Phenomenal. Like a "greatest hits" of The Last Green Valley partners and frequent haunts!

We had another fun day with Woodstock Recreation yesterday! Ranger Christie and Ranger Bill had all kinds of fun activities for the kids! We get pretty excited any time we can work with kids and show them the wonders of living in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor!
