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 27 parcels of land, about 89 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

The Memorial Day Parades are coming

We will be marching in Rowayton on Sunday May 29th.  Meet at 33 Highland Avenue arond 11:45.   We would love to have you join us.
