Walk Your Land Trust Series (Outing #1 – New Canaan)

Land trusts from Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk, and Stamford have teamed up to bring you the first-ever Discover Your Land Trust series. For four months, beginning in March 2022, each land trust will host an outing to introduce visitors to their preserves. We look forward to learning from each other, exploring our region’s open space, and making new connections.

Find the hidden beauty preserved by your local land trusts. This spring, explore a new landscape. Hike woodland trails where native birds of prey soar. Walk past a wildflower meadow rich in native species. Follow a winding path to a tidal estuary, where the river meets the ocean.

Registration is required.
