CONNECT is a collaborative venture of five Chatham County citizen action organizations that share concerns for conservation, preservation and protection of environmental and natural resources: Chatham Citizens for Effective Communities,  Haw River Assembly, Pittsboro Mattersr, Rocky River Heritage Foundation and Sierra Club Orange-Chatham Group.

CONNECT seeks to:

  • enhance communication and facilitate coordination between member groups
  • advance effective environmental policy advocacy efforts among member groups
  • provide citizen education and enable citizen action regarding a wide range of natural and environmental resource issues impacting Chatham County.

To this end, CONNECT offers a web site, to:

  • act as a repository of valuable information concerning  such issues as hydraulic fracturing (fracking), climate change, water quality/quantity, soil erosion, etc.
  • provide centralized and secure communication among member groups in addressing education and advocacy issues in a timely manner.
