This is the 26th annual Environmental Day Camp for Kids, which is held each year at the beautiful Killam’s Point Conference Center. It is hosted by Branford Land Trust, a local non-profit organization, accredited by the Land Trust Alliance, established in 1967 to protect Branford’s open space and natural resources. Run by volunteers and supported by member families and businesses, the Land Trust manages and protects over 1,000 acres in more than 130 parcels and holds conservation easements on another 400 acres in Branford.
