Clinton Land Conservation Trust
Protecting your natural resources

  Dr. Kimberly A. Stoner presents
 
 “Planting for the Bees’ Needs 
Providing Habitat for Honey Bees and Wild Bees”
 
Sponsored by the Clinton Land Conservation Trust
Monday, October 15th at 7PM at Henry Carter Hull Library

Did you know that Connecticut has 349 species of bees and honeybees are only one species? Bees are important as they produce honey and wax and pollinate our crops and native wild plants. Come learn about the life cycles of bees, where they live, and what plants they need to thrive and learn how to protect them from pesticides. Our presenter Dr. Stone joined the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station in 1987 after receiving her PhD in entomology from Cornell University. She is currently studying bee diversity in Connecticut and how bees are exposed to pesticides. She works with people across Connecticut, including farmers, beekeepers, and community groups, in creating habitat for pollinators.

This event is free and refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!!

The Alice and David Crosby Environmental Scholarship
 
The Alice and David Crosby Environmental Scholarship was established in 1997 in memory of Alice C. Crosby, who was for many years Chairman of the Clinton Board of Education. Subsequently, Alice's husband, David Crosby, a former CLCT Board member and graduate of the Yale School of Forestry, was added to the name of the scholarship. Alice and David Crosby became members of the Clinton Land Conservation Trust in its early days and remained active in its programs and projects throughout the rest of their lives. The scholarship is a $1,000 grant awarded each year to a Clinton graduating senior planning to pursue an education in a field related to the study of or preservation of the environment. .

The Clinton Land Conservation Trust is pleased to announce that Nicole DiStasio has been awarded the Alice and David Crosby $1000 Environmental Scholarship.  The Scholarship was established in Memory of both Mrs. Crosby, a longtime Clinton resident who served on the Board of Education for many years and Mr. Crosby who was a member of the Board of Directors of the CLCT.

Nicole is a Clinton Resident who recently graduated from Middletown High School Agricultural Program and will be attending Paul Smith College majoring in Sustainable Communities.

WE WISH HER WELL!
