As the year comes to a close, I wanted to celebrate with you the incredible things the local land trusts, all over Connecticut, are doing and ensure we empower them to continue that important work in the coming year.
You are a big part of their success when you support the Connecticut Land Conservation Council (CLCC).
As all-volunteer groups or small staffed organizations, we are just a phone call away when a land trust wants to know how to conserve a parcel of land, enhance its community outreach, address nonprofit financial issues, or provide training for new board members and/or volunteers.
The trainings, strategy sessions, coaching, mentoring, and technical resources we offer are made possible through the generous donations of people like you.
Your tax-deductible gift will help your local land trust get the training and support it needs to be successful. You’ll also be helping a state-wide effort to ensure that land conservation programs in Connecticut remain a priority and receive the resources necessary to help protect the special places we care about.
In short, your gift to CLCC will be helping to:
Conserve special places that define our communities
Keep our water and air clean
Protect local food and our agricultural heritage
Ensure that wildlife have the places they need to thrive
And provide open spaces to run around and have fun!
