We accomplish our mission through the programs and activities of three committees:
Protecting Salisbury’s natural resourcesLearn More
Celebrating Salisbury’s historyLearn More
organizing events that bring us togetherLearn More
Run largely by volunteers, the Association provides stewardship over 3,500 acres of conservancy land, preserves and presents Salisbury’s history and artifacts, conducts oral history interviews, supports educational outreach for area youth, and publishes books, maps, and guides. We offer lectures and exhibits, and we sponsor popular community-wide events, such as the 4 th of July Picnic and Salisbury Fall Festival.
Working with the Town Historian, the Association helps fund repairs and cleaning for tombstones and signs in the town’s 12 cemeteries. Through funds donated for specific purposes, we plant and care for trees, beautify Salisbury through the planting and tending of flowers and gardens, and help with improvements at the Town Grove.
The Association makes its home in the historic Academy Building at 24 Main Street in Salisbury, Connecticut. Stop by and discover more about our land, our history, and what’s happening in and around town. Lou Bucceri, our Executive Assistant, will be happy to greet you!
