Regional Conservation Conversation – Tuesday, July 17, 2018

Wintonbury Land Trust will host an informal discussion and tour of Hawk Hill Farm for State legislators, community leaders, and other land trusts in the greater Hartford area on Tuesday, July 17. The event is sponsored by the Connecticut Land Conservation Council to celebrate projects that received funding from DEEP’s Open Space & Watershed Land Acquisition (OSWA) grant program and the Community Investment Act.

The Land Trust’s acquisition of Hawk Hill Farm and improvements at the Town’s adjacent LaSalette Park were made possible in part by these and other State funds. So please invite your State legislators to join us in recognition of their continued support for these funding programs.

We look forward to an informal conversation with legislators, neighboring land trusts, and others about your local, regional, and statewide land conservation priorities. We’ll also take a short walk into Hawk Hill Farm to meet the Scottish Highland cattle and enjoy the view of the Hartford skyline. The event is from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., and heavy rain cancels. Hawk Hill Farm is located at 22 Duncaster Road in Bloomfield.
