Collage from the October #LoveYourCTLandTrust issue

Connecticut land trusts offered so many events, news, and celebrations since our last newsletter, it was hard to pick and choose which to feature in this newsletter. But fear not, keep the stories coming and the activities flowing and share them with us so we can tell everyone about your amazing work

Visiting local land trust properties is not only an opportunity to take a quick walk, but it also can be a space for nurturing other interests and connecting with others. They provide a setting for creativity like art and writing, accessibility to groups who may not have gone otherwise, and opportunities to gather around and enjoy the bounty nature offers with others who care.

Take a look around you and see where you can expand the experience of nature. You don’t have to organize a trip of 30 people; it can be as small as taking your busy friend out for a hike, standing in the middle of the trail and listening for birds, or just opening your Notes app and jotting down what you’ve seen.

As we settle into the full swing of autumn and dropping temperatures, let’s enjoy what the season uniquely brings. Keep your eyes open for local events and #LoveYourCTLandTrust!
