Connecticut is a state rich with natural resources and a great diversity of habitat, landscapes, plant life, and wildlife.  From the coastline of Long Island Sound, to the Litchfield Hills, the Connecticut River Valley and the Eastern Highlands, DEEP works to protect and preserve the natural resources and scenic beauty that make Connecticut a special place to live, work, or visit.
