CLCC staff and Granby Land Trust board members on a trail bridge looking at a pond

CT Magazine land trust article flat layI’m delighted to share that CLCC and several Connecticut land trusts and conservation organizations have been featured in the July issue of CT Magazine. The main piece, written by David Holahan, sheds light on the profound significance of land trusts and their conservation efforts in safeguarding the natural heritage of our beautiful state.

The article emphasizes the remarkable impact land trusts have on Connecticut communities and their indispensable role in helping our state achieve its conservation goals.

Highlighting some of CLCC’s initiatives and accomplishments, the article showcases the diverse ways land trusts positively influence our state – from enhancing recreational opportunities to climate change mitigation and ensuring our communities have clean air and water.

While none of this is news to us, it is heartening to see land trusts receive the attention and accolades they deserve; and, in the words of David Holahan, a reminder that “Connecticut would not be the same without its 130 individual and regional land trusts devoted as they are to conservation.”

#LoveYourCTLandTrust and a huge thanks for all you do to protect special places across Connecticut.
