The Last Green Valley is tow things-it’s the 35- town National Heritage Corridor in eastern Connecticut and south-central Massachusetts, and it’s also your member-supported, non-profit stewardship organization working locally to celebrate our heritage, conserve our natural resources and respect our working lands.
TLGV is a membership organization that reflects the interest of a broad-based, grassroots constituency through a democratic process. The Board of Directors are elected by the membership at the annual meeting. Members participate in all committees, which is where the work of the organization is conceived and executed. Members include individuals, families, businesses, non-profits, corporations, regional and state entities, congressional delegations, and our 35 towns.
It is the role of the TLGV: 1. Promote partnership at the local, regional, state and federal levels to accomplish the mission and maximize limited resources. 2. Act as an educator/facilitator to motivate independent actionsthat will accomplish the mission and maximize limited resources, and 3. Take action through specific projects or programs when TLGV is the only or most appropriate entity to bring about initiation jor successful completion of critical work.
