Commission Awarded at CLCC Conference

Commission participation

The Connecticut River Gateway Commission has been honored by the Connecticut Land Conservation Council with a“2023 Excellence in Conservation Award.”

CLCC recognizes organizations and individuals who make a substantive contribution to the success of land conservation and projects that serve as a guide to or can be replicable by other land trusts and communities in Connecticut.

The Commission’s Award recognized its 50 years of service to lower Connecticut River valley as well.

The Conservation Award was announced at CLCC’s Annual Conference held on March 25, 2023, at Wesleyan University. CLCC’s first in-person conference since 2019 was a wonderful success, attracting about 550 people from across the state and region, and even from distant Tasmania.

The Commission offered a workshop in conjunction with the Lyme Land Trust on “Light Pollution and Its Effect on Health and the Environment.”
