Annual Membership Meeting Set for Thursday, January 22, 2015 at 5:30pm at the Country Club of New Canaan

The Annual Membership Meeting of the New Canaan Land Trust will be held on Thursday, January 22, 2015 starting at 5:30pm at the Country Club of New Canaan. The public is welcome to attend. Following an update on Land Trust operations, volunteer activities and finances, the meeting will highlight the impressive conservation success achieved on Nantucket.

Our Guest Speaker Jim Lentowski has worked to protect Nantucket’s scenic landscapes and natural resources for over 40 years.  As Executive Director of the Nantucket Conservation Foundation he has had an enormous and permanent conservation impact on one of the most unique and scenic places in the USA.

Jim’s conservation ethic sprouted from his experiences as a Boy Scout, where his enjoyment of nature was fostered by outdoor exploration and projects focused on protecting natural resources for the greater good.

When Jim was hired as the first paid employee in 1971, the Foundation protected 1,200 acres.  Today the Foundation protects 8,950 acres, nearly one-third of Nantucket’s 30,000 acres.

Please come join us to celebrate the conservation work done by Jim Lentowski with the Nantucket Conservation Foundation and gain new inspiration about preserving the natural beauty that surrounds us here in New Canaan.
