We are excited to showcase this important parcel because it is part of the watershed with ground aquifers that feed the Conn. Water Company’s wells. These wells produce 1,000,000 gallons of pure drinking water a day, enough to provide six thousand families and businesses. The Weiss Loveday property connects with a small but beautiful parcel of state owned land and another Land Trust parcel totaling about 64 acres.

The Alice and David Crosby Environmental Scholarship was established in 1997 in memory of Alice C. Crosby, and subsequently her husband David. Alice and David were members of the Clinton Land Conservation Trust in its early days, and remained active in its programs and projects throughout their lives. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded each year to a Clinton graduating senior planning to pursue an education in a field related to the study of or preservation of the environment. This year CLCT proudly awards the scholarship to Emma Lovene, a 2020 graduate of The Morgan School who participated in the Environmental Club and Morgan Goes Green Community Project as well as many other activities. She will be attending the University of New Hampshire majoring in Environmental Science/Biology. The CLCT wishes her great success!Congratulations Emma!

I want to reach out to our members, volunteers and friends during these very uncertain times to remind folks that the Clinton Land Conservation Trust's properties are a great place to go for some fresh air, exercise, peace and quiet. The woods, streams, rocks and birds encountered along the hiking trails can help relieve the stress we are all under. A walk in the woods can provide a much needed break.
Stay safe and take good care of your community, friends and family. As Henry David Theroux wrote: "In wildness is the preservation of the world." Mike Houde

This is a small amount, but it all adds up. Key is getting folks to actually use it. Costs nothing, and lets them donate to a good cause...
