NORWALK, CONN. -- Norwalk Land Trust members recognized State Sen. Bob Duff, a Norwalk Democrat, with a citation for his help with laws to protect Connecticut's water, air and open space.

He's been named a Clean Energy Champion by the New England Clean Energy Council, and a 2016 Legislative Champion by the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters, officials said. He's been on the advisory board of the Norwalk Land Trust for more than 10 years.

"Bob knows we need natural open space in the midst of our lives and our work, and deserves the recognition the Connecticut League of Conservation Voters has accorded him," said John Moeling, president of the Norwalk Land Trust.

Moeling said Duff is now working with them on developing a wildlife sanctuary on the Hoyt Island property in Long Island Sound.

"The Norwalk Land Trust has done a phenomenal job of protecting open space in Norwalk," Duff said. "I am proud to have been recognized by this exceptional organization."

The Norwalk Land Trust is responsible for 28 parcels of open space, owning 65 acres and holding another 25 acres in conservation easements.
