The Harwinton Land Trust held its Annual Meeting on March 31, 2016.  The highlight of the meeting was a presentation by Amy Paterson, Executive Director of the Connecticut Land Conservation Council (CLCC).  Amy spoke to the group about the CLCC and the services it provides for CT’s land trusts.  She also reviewed the status of land conservation in CT, discussed an important upcoming lobbying campaign for Connecticut open space, and provided information on fund raising and obtaining grants.  It was a most informative and interesting presentation.  The Trust greatly appreciates Amy’s enthusiasm and willingness to visit the Trust in the face of her very busy schedule.  A slide show of work that volunteers did for the Trust in 2015 was also shown after a the business meeting.
