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.
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.
