In September 2018, we held a Discovery Day at our White Barn property.  The hit of the day was Skyhunters in Flight, presented by Falconer Brian Bradley.  Here are highlights of this wonderful demonstration.

Tax Help  Recent Federal legislation provides help to conservation non-profits such as the Norwalk Land Trust. First, the tax-deductibility for conservation easements is now permanent.  Second, the ability to make a direct donation out of your IRA (if you are over 70 1/2) to any non-profit is tax-free, permanently.
