Update 12/8/ 2023
On Tuesday, we held a news conference on the steps of town hall to celebrate Easton as the Christmas Tree Capital of Connecticut and our farming heritage. Local and state leaders along with members of our agricultural commission and many of our local farmers were present. It was a great event recognizing one very special aspect of our town. One important message conveyed was to please support our local farms year-round.

The Nutmeg Chapter of Trout Unlimited has developed a plan to restore a 2900’ section of the Mill River Wild Trout Management Area along Congress Street in Fairfield/Easton, running parallel to the Merritt Parkway. Since the days when the Merritt Parkway was built in the 1930s, many areas of the river have become too shallow, seen an erosion of the banks, and a degraded habitat needed for trout survival. More to come.
Have a great weekend.
