Our Commitment to
Open Space Preservation

Northeast Utilities cherishes the natural and cultural resources present on its lands.  Our conservation activities uphold over 40 years of work, inspiration and vision by hundreds of employees, community partners and local residents. Combined with our active management of forest and wildlife habitats, we are preserving nature's beauty for generations.

These lands continue to represent NU's proud stewardship heritage and many of the region's most-prized open spaces.  We invite you to join us in discovering our great outdoors.
