Description

The Edward Steichen Memorial Wildlife Preserve, better known as Huckleberry Swamp, was donated to Connecticut Audubon Society in 1973 by Redding Open Lands, Inc. It is a tenacious sort of swamp. Captain Steichen tried to drain it in the 1930s. You can still see the ditches. Yet the swamp prevails.
