Members are the backbone of the New Canaan Land Trust.  When you join the New Canaan Land Trust, you provide us with the means to protect what we all love about New Canaan.  Your membership helps us fund our core services of land protection and stewardship by covering appraisals, land surveys, legal fees, insurance and essential land care expenses.

New Canaan Land Trust members will enjoy events such as the Stargazing, Geology Walk, Spring Walk, Field Trip and Annual Meeting.  These programs provide opportunities for members to expand their understanding and appreciation of land conservation.  All members will receive periodic updates on New Canaan Land Trust's accomplishments and priorities via an electronic newsletter, printed newsletter, and annual report.


Gift Memberships: Giving a New Canaan Land Trust membership to a friend or family member underscores your belief in our important mission.  New Canaan Land Trust memberships make excellent birthday gifts, teacher presents, and are a great way to honor a loved one.
