Volunteer With Us…

Volunteering with the New Canaan Land Trust is a great way to get involved and give back to your community. By signing up as a volunteer, HERE, we can pair you with appropriate volunteer opportunities as they arise. Just let us know how you would like to volunteer and what your interests are, and we will reach out to you.

Another great way to get involved is to keep an eye on our events calendar for upcoming service days. There, we welcome volunteers to join us in planting trees, repairing stone walls, and more. If you or a group would like to volunteer with the New Canaan Land Trust, please contact us and we will work to come up with a service project that suits your interests and needs.

…Or Sponsor A Project!

Some projects are simply too big or complex for our staff or our volunteers to carry out, and we opt to work with a local contractor. We often rely on the support of neighbors and community members to fund these types of projects, but also work with individuals or companies who would like to sponsor individual projects. Sponsoring a project leaves a lasting legacy that land trust visitors will enjoy for decades to come, and is considered a tax-deductible donation. ​

Sponsored projects may include:

  • Building informational kiosks at trailheads
  • Improving infrastructure, such as bridges and walkways, on our trails
  • Restoring sections of historic stone walls
  • Installing split-rail fencing along land trust property boundaries
  • Completing habitat assessments
  • Another project you’ve already thought of!
