Customized Publications

Land and water conservation is an ever-changing effort in Connecticut that is increasingly urgent as we work together to create healthy communities. To support land conservation at a variety of scales, as well as help landowners and municipalities envision what their conservation options are, we periodically create publications to further the discussion.

Feel free to download the publications. If there are other publications that would be helpful to you or if you have any questions about any of the content on this page, please let us know by emailing CLCC Executive Director Amy Blaymore Paterson at
