Held every Spring, the Connecticut Land Conservation Conference (Annual Conference) is the largest conservation gathering and only convocation of its kind in Connecticut. Attracting over 300 attendees annually - and growing in size each year - the Annual Conference provides dynamic training, networking and information sharing opportunities for board members, staff and volunteers from Connecticut's many land trusts and conservation organizations, as well as a broad spectrum of people involved with municipal land use commissions, state agencies, private groups with conservation missions including enthusiasts from garden clubs and various grassroots-level land preservation advocates.
The Annual Conference features an inspiring opening plenary session, including an awards ceremony recognizing outstanding achievements in conservation by organizations and individuals; multiple subject matter tracks featuring 30+ workshops, roundtables and seminars on a range of topics of interest to the conservation community; exhibits and displays from land trusts, conservation partners and conference sponsors; and a unique opportunity for socializing and networking, including a post-conference reception, with land conservation peers from across the state and beyond.
