Conservation – Collaboration – Community
We are six land trusts in the lower Connecticut River Valley region dedicated to the preservation of open space and natural resources. Each year, we join together to further our shared mission by hosting an amateur photography contest. The purpose of the contest is to engage photographers in capturing the natural beauty of the region and share their work with the public.
The Land Trusts Photo Contest is about finding and celebrating the hidden treasures in our own back yard. It is an incentive for people to visit land trust properties, observe conservation at work and recognize the vital contribution that land trusts make to our communities.
The 2019 Land Trusts Photo Contest will be judged by a panel of three experts in photography and art: Joe Standart, an award-winning photographer, director and internationally known artist who loves photographing the natural world; Amy Kurtz Lansing, an accomplished art historian and curator at the Florence Griswold Museum; and Skip Broom, a respected, award-winning local photographer and antique house restoration housewright.
