Conservation Law Foundation

From Global Energy Monitor

Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) is the oldest regional environmental advocacy organization in the nation. Since 1966, CLF's staff has worked to solve environmental problems that most threaten New England, aiming to conserve natural resources and protect public health. The group has played a central role in protecting Georges Bank from oil drilling and overfishing, ending sewage dumping into Boston Harbor, preserving bear habitat in Vermont, saving New Hampshire’s Franconia Notch from a 4-lane highway, and writing lead protection laws in Rhode Island.

CLF is a nonprofit, member-supported organization with offices in Brunswick, Maine; Boston, Massachusetts; Concord, New Hampshire; Providence, Rhode Island; and Montpelier, Vermont.[1]
