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!

This active beaver lodge has a an opening in the ice where the beaver can easily exit the water. There are likely several more openings into the lodge that are completely submerged. Beaver are active year round and would have spent the fall harvesting wood and sticking it in mud right outside the lodge to ensure a winter meal. They also store fat in their tail to help them get through the winter. The inside of the lodge has a dry chamber for the beaver inside.

Amazing engineering

Cool

We managed to grab this photo of a stunning pine warbler at West Thompson Dam during our last Acorn Adventure. The beautiful flash of yellow was a surprise - warblers are not known for wintering in The Last Green Valley. But thanks to Connecticut Audubon Society, Center at Pomfrets Andy Rzeznikiewicz we just learned that a few do decide to spend the winter with us. Gives new meaning to the phrase snowbirds. 😉
