Calling all Farmington Valley artists! The Canton Land Conservation Trust is kicking off its 40th Anniversary celebration with an art contest.
Artists of all ages are invited to create an original work of art inspired by these beautiful landscapes. A Purchase Prize of $500 will be awarded to the winner and the winning entry will be used as a commemorative print to celebrate the anniversary.
The deadline for digital submissions is June 21 and the winner will be announced July 21. For details see www.cantonlandtrust.org/artcontest.html or contact John Rohlfing at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-693-6412.
The Land Trust is the steward of 55 parcels of land – including 11 with trails, blazed and maintained by Trust volunteers – that are open to the public.
The celebration will culminate on Sept. 29 with day activities for all ages and an evening of dining and dancing at Ski Sundown. All are welcome to join in celebrating the results of the Trust’s four decades of work: the preservation of more than 2,000 acres of land in their natural state.
The Canton Land Conservation Trust is a non-profit conservation organization formed in 1972 to acquire, preserve and protect land of scenic, natural or historic value within the Town of Canton; to maintain this land and its plant and animal life using the best conservation, wildlife habitat and forestry practices available; and to promote public awareness, understanding and enjoyment of the land.
