I’m a big fan of the NPR Politics Podcast. If you also listen then you know that at the end of each show, the political reporters share something from the week’s news that they “can’t let go of.”
As I sat down to write this message, I was thinking about the recent UN biodiversity report and the incredibly distressing news of the threatened extinction of 1 million species. News I can’t let go of.
Yet the report also states that it is not too late to make a difference – underscoring more than ever the importance of your land conservation work.
This month, I celebrated my ninth year as CLCC’s executive director and reflected on how far we have come together.
Connecticut’s land conservation community continues to grow: working to save more land, reach more people, and be a vocal and visible force at the state Capitol.
All of which fills me with hope.
I can’t (and won’t) let go of that either.
