The informal get-together is being hosted by the Lewisboro Land Trust,Westchester Land Trust, the Pound Ridge Land Conservancy, and the Invasives Project-Pound Ridge, in partnership with the Land Conservancy of Ridgefield.

The Hudson to Housatonic (H2H) Conservation Initiative is a new inter-state collaboration of more than two dozen local and regional conservation organizations and municipal partners across southwestern Connecticut and Westchester and southeastern Putnam Counties in New York State. H2H partners will engage landowners identified as pivotal in the battle to protect imperiled streams, drinking water reservoirs, and plant and wildlife habitat. Funded by a two-year US Forest Service grant, H2H will be led by Highstead Foundation (on behalf of Fairfield County Regional Conservation Partnership (FCRCP), Westchester Land Trust, Mianus River Gorge, and Housatonic Valley Association.
