CLCC invites you to join in on a special discussion that brings together state legislators and land trusts across regions in Connecticut to highlight community conservation success stories made possible in part by DEEP’s Open Space and Watershed Land Acquisition Grant Program (OSWA) or Urban Green and Community Garden Program (UGCG) – funded by the Community Investment Act.

Last year, we held these events virtually. We will gather outside to hold Conservation Conversations in person (following any COVID-19 guidelines) across the state this fall in which land trusts will showcase their wonderful properties with an opportunity to discuss land conservation and other local important issues.

Space is limited. Registration is required.
