[Hartford, CT] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement today on the sale of the Deer Lake Boy Scout camp in Killingworth to local non-profit Pathfinders.
“Today is a momentous day for the preservation and protection of one of our state’s most beautiful parcels of undeveloped land. Deer Lake is a pristine and precious area that is of incalculable value for fishing, camping, hiking and just appreciation of the outdoors. I am absolutely thrilled that Pathfinders Inc. was able to secure the purchase of the property and preserve it so that generations to come can enjoy its natural beauty. Protecting open space is critically important for our environment – once it is lost there’s no way to get it back,” Blumenthal said.
