Nature is a language, and every new fact that we learn is a new word, but rightly seen and taken all together, it is not merely a language, but the language put together into the most significant and universal book.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature is all around us, from the depths of the blue ocean to the great plains of the Serengeti, from the Amazon rainforest to our own backyards. And it is right in our own backyards that we can perhaps make the biggest difference for wildlife. Connecticut is rich in nature and we want to help you enjoy the richness. We will continue to build this section, filling it with wonderful ideas and projects you can get involved in to truly make a difference for wildlife and wild places.

And if you’d like us to provide you with other specific conservation ideas, please feel free to give us a call at 203-394-6564. We’ll do our best to get the information and share it on our website. We want you to join us in our mission of creating a greener planet for everyone!
