Fresh Meadows

The Fresh Meadows Swamp is part of the headwaters of the Mill River which reaches Long Island Sound at New Haven Harbor. The WLT Fresh Meadows parcel is 44 acres which contains most of the Fresh Meadow Swamp. Together with 124 acres of Town of Wallingford land, there are over 168 acres of continuous open space.

Access to the property is from Jeremy Woods Drive between house numbers 6 and 8. The hiking trail is on the little high ground there is. Most of the parcel is wetlands, not accessible, and is host to a variety of plants and wildlife.
