Welcome to the November edition of #LoveYourCTLandTrust eNews, with exciting stories of land trusts successfully leveraging support for their projects at every level, from local and federal funding to DEEP’s Open Space and Watershed Land Acquisition Program, a priority of CLCC’s advocacy work.
Local engagement and partnerships are key: A fifth grader’s testimony in support of Avalonia Land Conservancy’s ongoing efforts to conserve land in Norwich; Bethany Land Trust’s successful request for the town’s contribution of federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds; and Easton citizens’ vote to support Aspetuck Land Trust.
Please read on, and be prepared to be inspired!
#LoveYourCTLandTrust for galvanizing support to make a difference in communities across Connecticut.
