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.

 

Volunteers:  Every Friday morning, we gather to do gardening maintenance at Farm Creek.  Bring your long sleeved shirt, bug spray and gloves.  We have new plantings that need a human touch; and there are always wicked invasives!

 

Our Education Program with 4th graders has concluded. Another fabulous spring of learning and having fun.  Hundreds of youngsters learning in the classroom and on the field trip.  Our short video gives you the gist…

Restoring Hoyt Island

Our three acre island located in Long Island Sound between Wilson Point and Village Creek is important and threatened habitat.  Ten bird species–endangered,threatened, or species of concern– forage and nest here, including the American Bald Eagle.  It is a nesting habitat for the Diamondback Terrapin.  We are committed to cleaning up the contamination discovered there.

We have a remediation plan ready for implementation this fall, if we get funding.   Please be part of our solution.
