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  29 parcels of land, about 100 acres.

Our latest newsletter captures some of our activities over the year.  Enjoy.

Many of us visited  White Barn Preserve recently for a Walk in the Woods and an introduction to forest bathing. The right course of action for this 15-acre parcel is that it be kept in its current ‘undeveloped’ condition so that all of us can take a good walk in the woods…and meet upon birds and insects that need a habitat this size.

White Barn - October 2019

Fall Yard Activities.  May we suggest you mulch your leaves and leave them in your yard?  Enriches the soil and provides winter habitat for those who need it.  Set your mower to the highest setting for that final cut. Get the leaves pretty small, mow over them a couple of times if necessary and spread them out.  Pulling up plants?  Cut them into smaller pieces and leave them.  They will degrade and give back their nutrients.

Let’s create a Pollinator Pathway through Norwalk.  Learn all about it and about planned events by clicking here.  Plant some native plants and stop using pesticides and other harmful chemicals on your lawn.  That’s it!
Now you have taken a true step to help the planet.  If you would like, purchase a sign ($10) to show your support of pollinators and be part of the pathway through Connecticut.
