Saving Special Places: Land Conservation in Connecticut at the Sherman Library

May 19, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sherman’s conserved land makes this community a special place to live and play.  Curious about how the work of land conservation happens?

In 2020, Naromi Land Trust merged with Weantinoge Heritage Land Trust and became Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy (NCLC).  NCLC is Connecticut’s largest land trust, permanently protecting over 12,500 acres of land in Litchfield and Fairfield Counties. NCLC’s landholdings include 21 public preserves. In addition, NCLC protects 40 working farms, 3,000 acres of habitat for rare and endangered species, and 45 miles of rivers, lakes, and streams.

On May 19 at 7 pm, Paul Elconin, Director of Land Conservation and Amanda Branson, Director of Operations and Finance will give a virtual presentation on NCLC’s land conservation programs for the Sherman Library.  This presentation is great for anyone who loves nature, is curious about new places to hike, or wants to learn more about land conservation. We hope you can join us.
