WELCOME TO GREAT MOUNTAIN FOREST

Located in Norfolk and Falls Village in the northwest corner of Litchfield County, Connecticut

OUR MISSION:

Great Mountain Forest’s mission is to be a leader in forest stewardship. We practice sustainable forest management, promote biodiversity and resilience to climate change, support education and research, and welcome all who love the woods.

Great Mountain Forest (GMF) encompasses more than 6,000 acres of contiguous forestland in the towns of Norfolk and Canaan, Connecticut. GMF is owned and managed by The Great Mountain Forest Corporation, a not-for-profit 501 © 3 private operating foundation.

In Memoriam

David K. Leff (1955-2022)

We are deeply sorry to note the death of David Leff. David was passionate about the forest and a dedicated member of our Board of Trustees from 2015-2022.  Great Mountain Forest and the board benefited greatly from his counsel and perspective over the years.
