Becoming an advocate is one of the most important steps you can take toward protecting Connecticut’s lands and waters for future generations. The Connecticut Land Conservation Council has put together a number of additional tools to help guide your advocacy work, keep you informed on the issues, and bolster support for land conservation statewide. They include step-by-step directions to help you reach out to your legislators in Hartford, as well as your local community.
