Open Space Benefits Everybody

Protecting open space provides so many benefits here at home in Connecticut as well as across the country. From improving the mental and physical health of adults and children to supporting strong local economies, it makes sense to do all that we can to conserve open spaces for the benefit of generations to come.

Strengthen Land Conservation in Connecticut

There are many challenges in land conservation, but we have never yielded. We’ve always found our strength in the support of people who care for the environment as much we do. We can achieve so much more working with one another than alone.

We're stronger together.
