It is with pleasure that we announce the completion of a merger between Brookfield Open Space Legacy, Inc. (BOSLI) and Weantinoge Heritage Land Trust. Effective June 30th, Weantinoge will change its name to Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy. Simultaneously, Weantinoge and Naromi Land Trust of Sherman plan to merge.
For many years, our organizations have worked closely together in partnership. We have cared jointly for properties in Brookfield and shared staff, volunteers, and resources. This merger represents a natural next step. Weantinoge looks forward to stewarding BOSLI's land in perpetuity and working even more closely with the community of Brookfield.
The new name better reflects the work that Weantinoge does and its far-reaching impact. However, our mission to safeguard the natural lands and waters you depend on is not changing. We are still Northwest Connecticut's regional land trust and the state's land conservation leader, safeguarding more than 10,500 acres of natural and working lands, public recreation areas, and drinking water resources forever.
