Grant Received from The Maurice Sendak Foundation

Wednesday, June 14th, 2023

The Land Conservancy of Ridgefield (LCR) would like to thank The Maurice Sendak Foundation for its generous grant. Our relationship goes back many years with Maurice Sendak, celebrated writer and illustrator of children’s literature and longtime Ridgefield resident. In 2010, he granted the Land Conservancy of Ridgefield a 30-acre conservation easement on his property off Chestnut Hill Road to keep the woodland in its natural state in perpetuity.

Receiving this grant continues our relationship and our deep appreciation of a kind and private man who loved the wild woods of Ridgefield. The LCR is very lucky to have generous donors such as Mr. Sendak. People who appreciate the natural landscape of fields, woods, farmland, and all the natural beauty that contributes to making Ridgefield so special.
