Land Trust Resources

To assist land trusts in their outreach efforts, “What is a Land Trust?” details the essential work land trusts do in conserving and stewarding the places important to our local and statewide communities. “Protecting the Land You Love” highlights landowner and land trust conservation success stories to help landowners understand the conservation process and their options.

CLCC Primers

To fully comprehend and value the scope of land conservation in Connecticut, it is vital to have an awareness of Connecticut’s conservation goals, how land conservation can serve as a buffer to climate change, and the ways we can all contribute to building a healthy and sustainable future. Our primers are aids in understanding the present and future of land conservation in Connecticut.

Annual Reports

Community is at the core of who we are and what we do. Each passing year is a reminder that our work would be impossible without the contributions and support of Connecticut’s land trusts, our sponsors and donors, and our local, statewide, and national partners. From our policy work to our advancement initiatives to our annual conference, we prioritize the lands we all love to build a more robust and dynamic land conservation community.
