In 2020, Weantinoge Heritage Land Trust merged with Naromi Land Trust and simultaneously changed the name of the organization to 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, an announcement said. 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.

Paul Elconin, Director of Land Conservation and Amanda Branson, Director of Operations and Finance, will give a presentation on NCLC’s land conservation and partnership programs.

This program is for anyone who loves nature, is curious about new places to hike, or wants to learn more about land conservation.
