In September 2018, we held a Discovery Day at our White Barn property.  The hit of the day was Skyhunters in Flight, presented by Falconer Brian Bradley.  Here are highlights of this wonderful demonstration.

Upcoming Events this Winter:

February 26: 7 pm at Rowayton Community Center — a powerful film, The Future of Energy, highlights the people and communities leading the way towards a renewable energy future, and features some of America’s top energy specialists and ecological visionaries.

February 28:  FCGives.  A 24 hour on line giving event.  We will be participating, and hoping to raise enough money between the hours of 10 and 11 to win an additional prize.  Also during that hour,  a Board of Directors’ Matching Challenge will match your donation 1:1.

March 7:  An extraordinary evening with Author Doug Tallamy.  Darien Library. 7 pm

March 12: 7 pm, Rowayton Community Center. The next roundtable discussion for “Our Earth, Your Call”     Topic:  Renewable Energy Options in CT

National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Grant

Norwalk Land Trust was selected by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation for a matching grant of $20,000.  NLT will develop a salt marsh restoration demonstration program, improving  5-8 acres of degraded intertidal salt meadow.

 

Tax Help  Recent Federal legislation provides help to conservation non-profits such as the Norwalk Land Trust. First, the tax-deductibility for conservation easements is now permanent.  Second, the ability to make a direct donation out of your IRA (if you are over 70 1/2) to any non-profit is tax-free, permanently.

 

AMAZON SHOPPERS:  Amazon teams up with the Norwalk Land Trust.  Enter the Amazon website via www.smile.amazon.com and direct a small percentage of your purchase to the Norwalk Land Trust.  Easy, easy and every little bit helps.  Thanks.
