4. White Memorial Foundation - A Leading Environmental Education & Wildlife Center

Leaving the center of Litchfield, proceed on Rte. 202 west to White Memorial Foundation & Conservation Center, a four thousand acre nature sanctuary with a Natural History Museum bordering Bantam Lake.

The Foundation, larger than any Connecticut State Park, has three campgrounds and thirty-five miles of trails for hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, and x-country skiing.

The Natural History Museum provides a glimpse of the natural diversity found in the sanctuary and features hand painted and photographic murals, dioramas, interactive exhibits, plus unique exhibits on "The Art of Taxidermy", as well as a working honeybee hive, and a fluorescent rock cave.
