“Long before there were Nature Conservancies, before there were any local land trusts, in fact prior to any general awareness about nature education and habitat preservation, The Denison Society, of Stonington, CT made a commitment to environmental preservation.”
-Maggie Jones, Executive Director of DPNC.

During 2016 the Denison Homestead will celebrate 70 years of preservation and exploration of the environment through its stewardship of more than 160 acres of George Denison’s original
200 acre land grant.

By providing nearly 80 acres of land  the Denisons have supported a nature preserve in Stonington for all to enjoy since 1946.  Until 1972 the Pequotsepos Wildlife Sanctuary was the beneficiary of this gift. In 1972 the Denison Trustees organized its successor, the present-day Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center, affording it the same opportunity to this share this space with the community.
