Devine Nature Preserve


This parcel was given to the WLT by Kathleen and Mildred Devine.  Kathleen was a WLT board member when she passed away in 2000. Mildred still lives in the family home on Bloomingdale Rd., now surrounded by the nature preserve.  In support of “Leave a Legacy” in Connecticut, Mildred and Kathleen donated the land so that it will be preserved as open space in perpetuity, a haven forever to local wildlife. 

Property Highlights

Wildflowers and wildlife are abundant.  The remains of an old chimney is covered with rugosa rose and an old dump is nearby.  There are no trails as of 2023, but it is easily traversed.


There is no parking for this property.  Bloomingdale Rd. is extremely busy, and motor vehicles do not slow down.  A property sign with a map was erected in 2022.
