About Us


The New Haven Land Trust promotes the appreciation and preservation of natural resources in New Haven for the benefit and education of the community.

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 individual donors.

The New Haven Land Trust is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Donations are tax deductible. A 990 form on our reports and finances page.
