The mission of the New Canaan Land Trust is to foster a connection between the New Canaan Community and its natural resources through the conservation and sustainable stewardship of our open space.
The vision of the New Canaan Land Trust is a New Canaan community with abundant, protected open space and the imperative to safeguard its natural resources for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations.
During a comprehensive strategic planning process, the New Canaan Land Trust identified five strategic priorities to guide our work:
- Ensure Long Term Organizational Sustainability
- Continue Growing NCLT’s Network of Protected Open Space
- Steward Our Preserves
- Engage the New Canaan Community in Our Mission
- Effectively Govern, Staff, and Operate NCLT
These priorities, and accompanying goals and organizational benchmarks, are detailed in the NCLT’s 2019-2024 Strategic Plan, which can be downloaded as a PDF using the button, below.
