The Norwalk Tree Alliance (NTA) is a volunteer, non-profit organization actively engaged with our community in the initiation and support of programs that promote a healthy urban forest.
We were formed in early 2002, and achieved non-profit status shortly thereafter. We work with the City of Norwalk on the annual tree planting program, as well as on a registry of all notable and memorial trees, both privately owned and city trees. We operate the first municipal tree farm in Fairfield County. NTA's current plans include installing tree identification signs in several Norwalk parks.
NTA is an advisor and participant in the annual Arbor Day celebration, when a tree is planted at one of the City schools.
A large contribution is made by us to the annual Connecticut Tree Festival, held in May at Cranbury Park. The 2015 date is May 16 11AM to 3PM, rain or shine.
The festival features exhibits by local tree organizations and other outdoor-oriented groups. There are kid-friendly activities. Festival guests are served complimentary hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks.
The Norwalk Tree Alliance invites you to join us. We are community-minded volunteers who are friendly, active and involved in making Norwalk a better place to live. We need your support for our programs.
Our membership dues are only $10/year individual, or $15/year family.
Please consider becoming a member, or making a tax deductible donation to us. As a member, you will receive our newsletter. See the membership page. If you prefer to donate online, please use this address: http://www1.networkforgood.org/
We need your help. Please consider volunteering for a few hours each month to help us implement our programs.
