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...

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