What’s Happening at NLT

June 5: Trees for Bees: A project involving several Norwalk organizations continued on June 5 on a Norwalk Land Trust property. Trees and shrubs that provide habitat for bees have been donated by One Tree Planted. Partners included One Tree Planted, and Norwalk River Watershed Association. Thank you one and all for helping plant so many trees and flowers.

Removal of contamination on tiny 3-acre Hoyt Island has been completed! The contaminated soil and building debris have been “contained” and is on its way 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. Habitat restoration of the island will be a future task.

Contamination caused by fire 13 years ago will finally disappear from tiny Hoyt Island
The diamondback terrapin will no longer get trapped in old home foundation.
Tides, winds, rain had to cooperate for this project.
