Landscape Responsibly

Norwalk River Watershed Association

The way you manage and landscape your property, including how you care for your well and what you do to manage runoff containing contaminants from your roof and driveway, will help protect the watershed, ensuring benefits to your family, plantings, pets and wildlife.

NRWA recommends using Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) accredited land care professionals. Here is a list of providers in Fairfield County.

  • Leave some dead trees and branches. Birds, native bees and overwintering beneficial insects need snags and old logs to next in.
  • Add native plants.  Native plants support native wildlife–birds, bees, butterflies, amphibians, fish and mammels.  Here are our favorite lists of native plants for this area.
