The Darien Land Trust permanently preserves and restores open space, providing the community with environmentally rich habitats, scenic vistas, opportunities for educational experiences and the quiet enjoyment of nature.
The Darien Land Trust now owns or has conservation easements over more than 200 acres in Darien. We have permanently protected diverse natural environments such as wetlands along the Five Mile River, tidal salt marshes at Holly Pond and Scott’s Cove, upland forests in Dunlap Woods, and meadow habitat at Mather Meadows, Fox Run, and Brendans Meadow.
Volunteers are vital to the success of the Darien Land Trust, from serving on our board of directors to land protection, habitat restoration, office support, and organization. Whatever your skill, knowledge, or interest, there's a place you can make a difference. Read More
