Audubon Connecticut is a leader in the conservation arena in the state.

You can help us make a big difference in state and federal policy affecting the environment! The Co-Chair of the Connecticut Legislature's Environment Committee once told us that if she heard from a half dozen people on an issue, that she considered it a mandate and was compelled to take action. So, yes, your phone calls, letters and e-mails do make a difference!
