Conservation Leadership Circle

The Conservation Leadership Circle (CLC) is a special membership category of donors who are able and willing to support our annual operating costs with unrestricted gifts of $1,000 or more. These donors provide critical financial support that ensures CELT’s ongoing ability to conserve and provide stewardship for lands cherished by our community—from shore lands to marshes, from farmlands to woodlands—for the education, use, and enjoyment of this and future generations. You are invited to join the CLC to have a direct impact on furthering this important mission.

Benefits of Joining the CLC

CLC members share a passion for environmental stewardship and community engagement. For many, the biggest benefit of CLC membership is contributing to the continuation of first-rate conservation practices in the town they love.

Other benefits of membership include:

  • year-round invitations to special events and outdoor gatherings
  • special updates on important conservation issues, CELT activities and acquisitions
  • an invitation to the annual CLC and Oak Society reception
  • recognition in CELT’s annual report

You will also be paired with a current member of the CLC who will welcome you and answer any questions you may have.
