Question 2 Lawn Sign at Library Exhibit

CFPA’s Board, staff, and members of the Winslow Society gathered on March 27th at the Connecticut State Library’s Memorial Hall for a special preview of the of a new display celebrating CFPA’s many significant legislative accomplishments.

Visit the Library and learn why there are no billboards on the Merritt Parkway, and 50,000 to 100,000 acres no longer burn each summer in the Nutmeg state.

The Library’s new display highlights CFPA’s extensive work to prevent forest fires. It also details the work CFPA did in advocating to keep annoying billboards off of the Merritt Parkway and other rural roads.

More recent accomplishments are also featured. They include the Passport to the Parks, which provides needed funding for state parks (and eliminates parking fees for CT residents) and last year’s passage of the critical Constitutional Amendment to Protect Public Lands (Question #2). The display will be open into the Summer.

The State Library holds and protects CFPA’s archives, and we want to thank them.  Memorial Hall is a gem of a small museum and we encourage you to visit the CFPA display and feel great about the conservation advocacy work you support.

Celebrate CFPA’s (and your) Legislative Accomplishments. Thanks to Allen Ramsey and Damon Munz for their work on curating the display.
