Protecting Land » Priority Areas
The Litchfield Hills Greenprint Collaborative has prioritized the conservation of three regionally significant resources: prime farmlands, intact forest systems, and public drinking water. We are working with our member organizations and other partners to focus on a number of projects in areas with high concentrations of these three resources. To reach our goal of collectively protecting an additional 70,000 acres of these lands requires an extremely high level of commitment.
While we continue to support efforts at the local level—to preserve special places of particular importance to individual communities or land trusts—we also need to be effective on a larger scale, by protecting our shared landscape, if we are to save the irreplaceable assets that makes our region so special.
