Think again. Maybe you have only a few hours to give each month, or maybe you’re looking to make real, lasting change to the future of nature in Connecticut. Either way, we have a place for you. Check this space often for updated listings of work days and events, and – if you haven’t already – be sure to “like” us on Facebook ( to stay up-to-date on chapter happenings and share your involvement with your friends.
