Event Description

Come learn about the fascinating Morris Creek salt marsh ecosystem! Morris Creek is an elusive Land Trust Preserve that can only be accessed through Lighthouse Point Park.

Our guest speakers will be Lynne Bonnett from the Bioregional Group and John Cox, a knowledgeable and tireless NHLT volunteer. Lynne will speak to us about Tuttle and Morris Creeks from their headwaters to the Long Island Sound and speak about some of the challenges these creeks face in light of nearby municipal development. John Cox will teach us about some of the history of the area and about the ecological value of salt marshes.

The walk starts at 6 pm from the Butterfly Garden at Lighthouse Point Park (look for the red New Haven Land Trust truck). 

Walk is cosponsored by the Bioregional Group.

Thank you to the Quinnipiac River Fund and the New Haven Parks Dept for making this event possible!

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
