9/28: CT Accredited Land Trusts Working Group


Accredited Land Trusts Working Group 


Join us for our kick-off meeting on September 28! 


With the recent addition of Winchester Land Trust, Connecticut now boasts 25 accredited land trusts – one of the highest concentrations in the country! Beginning this fall, CLCC will convene an Accredited Land Trusts Working Group with the purpose of staying connected and current in developments affecting land trust work, Standards & Practices, and accreditation. Facilitated by Amanda Branson (Naromi Land Trust), Connie Manes (Kent Land Trust, CLCC Advisory Council, etc. etc.), and Sharon Feeley (Flanders Nature Center and Land Trust), this peer network and leadership group will meet periodically for discussion and undertake projects to assist Connecticut land trusts in implementing best practices. 


Please send a representative (or two) from your land trust join us for our first meeting on Friday, September 28th at CLCC’s headquarters.
