Logo   New England Flora & Fauna




Several hundred million years ago, before the mountains were given their final form, New England was in the midst of a tropical climate rich in plant life.

The Connecticut River Valley was a paradise for the dinosaurs who thrived here, and who left their footprints—and even their skeletons—in the thick river silt, which later turned to stone.

At Dinosaur State Park in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, you can see these remnants of New England's inhabitants from 200 million years ago.

Among my favorite features of the New England landscale are the coastal salt marshes with their grasses and abundant wildlife.
