No blazed trails. Cheshire is replete with small watercourses, rivers and expansive wetland areas. Development can place these vulnerable areas in jeopardy. A CLT strategy has been to identify and acquire when possible, threatened wetlands. The town has been supportive by enforcing wetland and river corridor protection measures. Several properties have been acquired by CLT and others by the town since the 1970's to enhance wetland protection.
