Join or Renew Your Business, Farm or Non-Profit Partnership

The Last Green Valley invites you to partner with us!

Click here to complete our easy online partnership form to become a partner or renew your partnership today to ensure you are listed in the 2023 edition of Explore! - the premier guide to The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor.

It's always a great time to join or renew your Business, Farm or Non-profit Partnership. Opportunities range in cost, promotional value and timeframe to fit everyone's needs. We even extend farms the same rate as non-profits (plus orchards, nurseries, forest/wood product businesses etc.).

Partnership (i.e. memberships for organizations) has many benefits, the main ones being inclusion in our annual Explore! guide the ability to participate in our popular programs like Walktober. We offer three different levels of promotion for the guide itself - starting with Supporting Partners (formerly Basic Partners), moving up to Sustaining Partners (formerly Enhanced Partners) and finally the new premium level of Stewarding Partners. Learn more in detail by clicking here about the many opportunities and benefits of partnering with The Last Green Valley. The level of promotion in the guide does not impact the ability to participate in our year-round programs.

Explore! 2022 is nearly ready for print and distribution will include 300+ locations both within The Last Green Valley and beyond. The guides will be found at attractions, campgrounds, hotels, libraries, museums, town halls, shops and more across eastern Connecticut and its shoreline, central Massachusetts and all of Rhode Island - with notable and popular destinations including Old Sturbridge Village, the Roger Williams Zoo, the Bass Pro Shops at Patriot Place and state welcome centers in CT and RI.

For more information and to sign up, contact Kyle Gregoire at kyle@tlgv.org or call the office at 860-774-3300. The hard copy TLGV Partner Packet is also available should you need to print and submit such.

We help our partners promote their efforts, goods and services through our publications, website and social media. Promotion includes being found in both the print Explore! Guide as well as our new and improved online partner directory; it is a great way for people to find you and it is also optimized for search engines. But there is so much more we can do together year-round to help each other while also ensuring residents and visitors alike can enjoy, care for and pass on everything special about the National Heritage Corridor.

The Explore! Guide features more content packed with all of the activities people love in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. Places to shop, dine, stay, hike, bike, paddle, stroll, cross-country ski, swim, bird watch, fish, play disc-golf, visit historic sites, farmers markets and more are included.

And of course, Explore! focuses attention on all of our partners. Your restaurant, farm, orchard, nursery, vineyard, campground, B&B, hotel, service business, nonprofit, retail shop (arts, antiques, uniques), school, or fee-based activity such as bowling, corn maze adventure, golf, historic house tour, theater, or zipline belongs in Explore! Your business will also be included on TLGV’s online Business and Non-profit Partner Directory. Partners are encouraged to lead a Walktober or Spring Outdoors activity for more visibility during our popular fall and spring programs!

Explore! flies off shelves each spring and summer as we distribute 25,000 copies to over 300 locations such as fairs, festivals, speaking engagements, libraries, town halls, campgrounds, state welcome centers, and many other tourist attractions or information kiosks throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts in addition to the TLGV website. Explore! is The Last Green Valley’s primary fulfillment piece for all inquiries about the National Heritage Corridor. This is your opportunity to reach tens of thousands of residents and visitors each year!
