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.

 

Annual Meeting:  Please join us at our annual meeting on Monday, January 23rd at the Rowayton Community Center, 33 Highland Avenue.  Reception and annual meeting at 6:30; featured speaker Dr. Adam Whelchel, Director of Science at the Nature Conservancy of Connecticut at 7:30.

 

Connecticut is the first state in the nation to complete a salt marsh advancement assessment, down to the parcel scale, for its entire coastline.  Computer modeling for all 24 municipalities along our coast can help municipalities and citizens plan for the coming decades of change to our natural resources or existing built infrastructure. Tidal flooding and rising sea levels are already impacting our lives. What can we do, what can Norwalk do to reduce future conflicts and increase our “community resiliency”?
