Darien Land Trust

Preserving and protecting open space in Darien, Connecticut — Forever

Our Mission

The Darien Land Trust permanently preserves and restores open space, providing the community with environmentally rich habitats, scenic vistas, opportunities for educational experiences and the quiet enjoyment of nature.

The Darien Land Trust now owns or has conservation easements over more than 200 acres in Darien. We have permanently protected diverse natural environments such as wetlands along the Five Mile River, tidal salt marshes at Holly Pond and Scott’s Cove, upland forests in Dunlap Woods,  and meadow habitat at Mather Meadows, Fox Run, and Brendans Meadow.

Darien Land Trust permanently preserves and restores open space.
