Conserving Land by Staying Connected...

Conservation doesn't happen in a vacuum — it takes all of us, working together and 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.

These programs also help CLCC gain better insight into the needs of Connecticut's land trusts and better assist those involved in managing, governing, and supporting conservation groups.

Share your thoughts...

Interested in hosting a gathering of your peers? Need help convening the land trusts in your region? Please contact CLCC’s Deputy Director Aaron Lefland at alefland@ctconservation.org to share your thoughts and ideas for future programs.

Peer-to-Peer Networking Programs

Join CLCC for a discussion with your conservation peers to share experiences and discuss specific topics and roles within your organizations.

Past programs for peer groups have included—but are not limited to—accredited land trusts, land trust executive staff, board presidents, board treasurers, land stewards, and more!

Upcoming Peer-to-Peer Programs

There are no peer-to-peer networking programs scheduled at the moment. Please check back soon.

Regional Roundtables & Summits

Looking to convene with conservation groups in your region, or with land trusts of similar size and capacity? CLCC hosts regional roundtables and summits throughout the year, creating space for discussion and networking between peer land trusts. 

Get to know your neighboring land trust colleagues, share your land trust's experiences and challenges, offer advice on what's working, and get some advice on what could work better for your land trust and for your region!
