Why You Should Visit
The site provides habitat for several rare plant and animal species, as well as a significant part of the Hollenbeck River's watershed. This river runs through Robbins Swamp, one of the most important conservation areas in the state, and eventually feeds the Housatonic River. The Hollenbeck Preserve also provides habitat for some of Connecticut's declining grassland bird species.
