Conserving Land by Staying Connected
Throughout the year, CLCC convenes land trust board members, staff, and volunteers through targeted and topical gatherings. There, we identify challenges and opportunities on the horizon. We explore topics of communal interests. We foster and develop relationships with our peers.
Community-Centered Conservation Programs
The Community-Centered Conservation Programs focus on integrating human and ecological needs in conservation efforts. Recognizing past biases in conservation that marginalized people, especially those at society's fringes, these programs aim to center community needs and voices.
Advanced Collaboration & Merger Assistance
Assisting land trusts seeking stronger organizational health and effectiveness through advanced collaboration, structural realignment, or merger with other organizations.
Each year, CLCC and land trusts across the state host opportunities for to visit land conservation success stories made possible by the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection’s Open Space & Watershed Land Acquisition Program (OSWA)—funded by the Community Investment Act—and other state, federal, and local investments.
