A Series of Conversations Across the State

How will land conservation continue to evolve over the years? What are the ways we can build intergenerational connections to reach our shared goals of protecting the land we love?

We will explore these questions and more at CLCC’s 2022 Connecticut Land Conservation Conference Gather on the Land: Conversations Among Generations.

This year’s conference is planned by young conservationists from around the state, and highlights the hopes and goals for the future of land conservation through our efforts today.

Together, we will gain perspectives on current views of land conservation and the natural world, how concerns about the environment can impact personal and professional lives, and the ways our work connects the quietest corners to the busiest cities of our state. Through these conversations, let us strive towards a shared vision of protected and accessible outdoor spaces for all.
