Connecticut is home to over 130 land trusts. Together they have protected approximately 200,000 acres of land that is essential to ensuring clean water and air, and mitigating the impacts of climate change.
And that’s not all…
Land trusts connect people of all ages to nature and open spaces; partner with their communities to beautify neighborhoods and save working lands; create wildlife corridors; preserve scenic views and historic places; and share skills and passions to help ensure that we are healthy – inside and out!
Land trusts give us opportunities to work hard, play hard, and create strong and more sustainable communities across the state – together.
On this #GivingTuesday, please consider making a special gift to your local land trust to say thank you for all that they do for all of us.
#LoveYourCTLandTrust — we need them now more than ever.
