Group of people walking together in a community garden with the CLCC logo and the text "The 2020 Event Series Conservation Conversations"

Last summer, over 250 people joined 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) and Urban Green and Community Garden Program – funded by the Community Investment Act – and other state, federal, and local investments.

Together with state legislators, other elected officials, land trust representatives, and community leaders we toured preserves, farms, community gardens, and urban parks around the state while chatting about state, regional, and local conservation priorities.

This summer, we did it again – online!
