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.

 

 

The Land Trust has lost a wonderful and dedicated volunteer and good friend.  John Verel, husband of Mary Verel on our Board of Directors, lost his fight against the COVID-19 virus on April 2nd.  We will create a way to honor his dedication to the City of Norwalk and the 6th Taxing District (Rowayton) and we will find a way to share our profound sense of loss.  John Verel
