We can all play a part to protect our rural character and incredible open landscape – we just need to know how.
Educating people about conservation tools is an integral part of DLC’s mission. We regularly talk with municipalities, school groups, service and business associations, and private landowners about the importance of land preservation, sound planning, quality growth that protects important resources, and ways to keep farmers on the land.
Local officials have been eagerly attending our annual Town/DLC Board Breakfasts which serve to bring towns and DLC together on cooperative issues and ideas. We also host educational programs for local citizens and DLC members to educate people about sound land stewardship and the environment.
