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.
OUR ANNUAL MEETING WILL BE TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 2017. Join us at the Rowayton Community Center, 33 Highland Avenue . 6:30 Cocktails and conversation; 7:00 our annual meeting; and 7:30 our featured speaker, Dr. Adam Whelchel, Director of Science, the Nature Conservancy.
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. We are raising $130,000 in 2017. Please be part of our solution. Help us on Giving Day, March 9.
