There’s a chill in the air, the last of the leaves have gone, snow is falling, and animals are heading into hibernation for the arrival of winter. While the spring and summer festivals are long gone and the fall harvests are done, the work of Connecticut land trusts span all seasons! This month’s series of stories focus mainly on the various land acquisitions Connecticut land trusts and their partners have acquired at the turn of the Fall Equinox.
There is always a story behind the land that we enjoy. Be it through an anonymous donation, saving up to buy a parcel of land at the right time, or through a collaborative effort of like-minded groups, these stories exemplify the collective mission of conserving land for the benefit of the environment and future generations.
So while you finish up those last-minute year-end tasks, finalize winter holiday plans, or even look back on sunnier days, take a small break by the fire and remember to #LoveYourCTLandTrust!
