Conserving Northwest Connecticut: Adaptive Strategies for Accelerating the Pace of Conservation explores the conservation landscape in Northwest Connecticut, highlights the importance of continued conservation work in the region, and shares strategies for how to approach conservation going forward. These strategies are organized into three sections: ecology, economy, and equity.

This report was enabled by Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy (NCLC) and Save the Sound, who joined together to understand the possibility of increasing the pace of conservation in the region by exploring pathways to permanently protect quasi-protected lands. Other partners include The Nature Conservancy, the Housatonic Valley Association, and the Connecticut Land Conservation Council.
