Press Release

Approximately 4,200 feet of riverfront and about 45.5 acres of adjoining land along the Moodus River in the Moodus section of East Haddam, CT is now protected in its natural state due to efforts of the East Haddam Land Trust and local residents Gary and Donna Bogan.

East Haddam Land Trust recently purchased from the Bogans a 1.3-acre parcel bordering Grist Mill Road, as well as a conservation easement to five separate parcels totaling 44.23 acres between Grist Mill and Clark Gates Roads.

On this acreage, East Haddam Land Trust will create hiking trails with a loop along the Moodus River.

Though it once ran with human effluent and other pollutants, modern septic systems and better land use practices have helped Moodus River waters run clear.

The river now hosts native brook trout as it flows by the remnants of the historic gristmill and East Mill dams and through meadows, wetlands and woodlands alive with song birds and other wildlife.

The trail will meander along these sites and provide river access for fishing.
