May 2024 #LoveYourCTLandTrust Collage

As many of you may know, last week marked the end of the legislative session. Despite the urgent need for action, including prioritizing nature-based solutions, two key climate bills did not move forward in the Senate. This was highly disappointing.

Yet, despite these policy setbacks, successes in the field and the incredible conservation work in our state give me reason for hope as land trusts, towns, volunteers, and so many others continue to come together to protect land in their communities.

This month’s #LoveYourCTLandTrust eNews includes inspiring stories about land trusts’ dedication to advocacy, fundraising, stewardship, and other actions to enhance conservation in Connecticut. From film festivals to land acquisitions to volunteer events, grassroots volunteers continue to work hard to promote conservation for their communities, wildlife, future generations, and the land itself.

There is still much to be done to advance environmental policy in Connecticut, but this month’s stories remind us that there are also on-the-ground successes worth celebrating.

Now is a great time to get involved and #LoveYourCTLandTrust.
