The Land Trust of Danbury is a private, nonprofit organization that was incorporated in 1971. It is the only local land conservation organization in Danbury. The Land Trust was formed by residents concerned with protecting woodlands, fields, ponds, vernal pools and other wetlands and natural areas for the nature education they facilitate, the perpetual enjoyment their scenic views and hiking trails offer and the critical habitats they provide for area wildlife.
The Land Trust offers advice and counsel to individuals, families and business landowners on methods of land preservation and the possible tax benefits that may be realized.
