About Us

Mission:

New Haven Land Trust engages people in stewardship and cultivation of the land for a healthier community and environment.

We achieve this through:

  • Land Conservation:
    We maintain six preserves, close to 80 acres, comprising a variety of habitats: tidal wetlands, coastal upland forest and grassland, traprock ridge, riparian forest and fresh water wetlands.

  • Community Gardening:
    We provide land, technical assistance and supplies for nearly 50 community vegetable gardens.

  • Environmental Education:
    We offer educational programs about the environment, nature, land and gardening.

The New Haven Land Trust is supported by The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, the City of New Haven, and many other foundations, grants and individual donors.

The New Haven Land Trust is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Donations are tax deductible. You can view our financials including our IRS form 990s on the reports and finances page.
