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  30 parcels of land, about 100 acres.

An Invitation…..

Celebrate with Us. On Friday, September 24, come have a beer or glass of wine, slurp an oyster, visit with old and new friends; and celebrate the fall equinox at beautiful Farm Creek Preserve, from 5 pm to 7 pm.

Listen to Bill Nollman and enjoy Mother Nature. This is a fundraiser for the Preserve with a $20 entrance fee. Oysters & nibbles, wine and beer will be extra. Farm Creek has been a special place for many of us over the past year and a half. We have missed you and hope to see you there. Walk if you can. Street parking only, 34 Sammis. Rain date: Sunday, Sept.26. (We will observe COVID-19 protocols)

News about Hoyt Island: Removal of contamination on tiny 3-acre Hoyt Island has been completed! The contaminated soil and building debris have been “contained” and has been delivered to an EPA-approved site in Michigan. This project, first conceived in 2013, has been difficult and costly from the start. Fundraising for the extra costs identified in April and May is underway. Full habitat restoration of the island will be a future task.

Contamination caused by fire 13 years ago will finally disappear from tiny Hoyt Island.
Tides, winds, and rain had to cooperate for this project.

Volunteer Corner: The Wednesday Weeders. Join us on sunny days at Farm Creek Preserve, 34 Sammis Street, from 10 a.m. to noon.
