NLT Receives National Funding…

National Fish and Wildlife announced its annual Long Island Sound Futures Fund awards on Monday, Dec. 12 in Washington D.C. Norwalk Land Trust received $50,000 to restore its Hoyt Island property. Work started on this tiny island in 2013 to create a bird sanctuary to commemorate NLT’s 40th anniversary. However the burned-down ruins contained asbestos, PCB’s and other toxic contaminants which required significant fundraising over the past 9 years. With tremendous help from neighbors, friends, foundations and CT DEEP, the clean-up was finished last year. It can now be replanted with appropriate trees and bushes, and encouraged to become healthy habitat for birds, bats and small animals.
