Welcome to the Norwalk Land Trust website.  We acquire land and preserve it in its natural state for the benefit of Norwalk, CT residents, now and forever. We currently steward or take care of 28 parcels of land, about 90 acres.

Preserving land provides many benefits for everyone:

  • Homes for wildlife
  • Natural water filtration – cleaner air, cleaner water, erosion mitigation
  • Native plant growth and food creation for wildlife- birds, butterflies, bees
  • A place to learn about nature – outdoor classroom for youngsters, a walk in the woods for adults
  • Tree diversity – moderates climate, reduces water runoff, converts pollutants
