CLCC 2017 Year-End Report
The Connecticut Land Conservation Council (CLCC) is pleased to provide this year-end progress report on our major 2017 programs which we are implementing in accordance with our Strategic Plan (2016-2020).
There are approximately 137 land trusts in Connecticut, the third most per state in the country. Together they have protected over approximately 190,000 acres (and that is likely an underestimate). Connecticut’s land trusts vary in size, service area, number of members, number of volunteers, and capacity; some are staffed, but most are all-volunteer. The one constant is their steadfast dedication to doing whatever it takes to conserve land and other natural resources in their communities; and it’s incredibly inspiring.
As we state in our Strategic Plan, what distinguishes land trusts from other non-profits is the fact that they are created for the purpose of upholding their mission in perpetuity. As the state’s only land trust service association, CLCC is in a strong position to make sure that happens -- thanks to your support, participation and dedication.
