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  28 parcels of land, about 100 acres.

Whats Happening at NLT

The Norwalk Land Trust family mourns the loss of two former directors.  Peter Law and Michael Poler were wonderful board members and did so much to help make a real difference in the environmental neighborhood.

Join us every Wednesday morning at Farm Creek Preserve as we battle against invasives.  Masks and distancing will be observed.  9:30 am until 11:30.

Two scout troops have begun projects at White Barn.  We are bringing back the American Chestnut tree to Norwalk.  But first, a lot of clean up and digging… The first of the Chestnut trees got planted on June 26th.  And a walking trail is soon to be created.

Norwalk Takes Bold Recycling Step – FOOD COMPOSTING

Residents of Norwalk zip code 06853 (Rowayton) are bringing their food scraps to the drop off bins located at the back of the Rowayton Community Center, 33 Highland Avenue, every Wednesday from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm.  We will all follow distancing rules and use gloves.

This is a pilot program and hopefully will be implemented all over Norwalk.  Details here:  Norwalk Food Scrap Recycling Guide
