Regional Conservation Conversations - Summer 2018 Schedule

Join us and our co-hosts to visit land conservation success stories made possible by the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection’s Open Space & Watershed Land Acquisition Program (OSWA) - funded by the Community Investment Act - and other state, federal, and local investments.

Enjoy a fun, informal walk, and talk with State legislators, other elected officials, land trust representatives, and community leaders. These events are bipartisan, free and open to land trust members and others interested in discussing your state, regional, and local conservation priorities and celebrating land conservation success stories around the state.
