CLCC advocates for land conservation, stewardship and funding, and works to ensure the long-term strength and viability of the land conservation community in Connecticut.
The Connecticut Land Conservation Council’s overarching vision is to effect a verifiable and quantitative change in the social, political, and economic processes that conserve land. We believe in a future where land conservation is embraced as a community value seen as providing essential and daily benefits to the quality of life for current and future generations.
CLCC works with land trusts across the state to strengthen conservation efforts and provide equitable access to open space, and advocates for policies that support land conservation as a vital resource. What distinguishes land trusts from other non-profits is the fact that they are created for the purpose of upholding their mission in perpetuity. CLCC makes sure that happens.
