Bluff Point State Park and Coastal Reserve
Bluff Point is a state-owned peninsula often considered the last significant undeveloped area on the Connecticut coastline. In 1975, the Connecticut Legislature designated a portion of Bluff Point as a “Coastal Reserve” in recognition of its ecological importance and to preserve its ecological integrity. This mostly forested 800-acre site contains a variety of habitats supporting state-threatened and endangered species.
Juliana Barrett, a coastal habitat specialist with Connecticut Sea Grant, highlights Bluff Point State Park in Groton, CT. Bluff Point showcases many different habitats, all located within 800 acres.
