Naromi Land Trust conserves and protects the natural resources of Sherman, including wildlife habitats, water quality, agricultural lands and scenic vistas, for the benefit of, and use by, current and future generations.
Naromi Land Trust was created in 1968 with a mission to protect open spaces, farmlands, ridges and scenic vistas that define the rural character of Sherman. It is a nonprofit volunteer organization with broad community support that continues to grow. During its 49 years Naromi has protected close to 2000 acres of land in the small town of Sherman utilizing fee ownership, conservation easements and agricultural easements and has been one of the pioneers of conservation development in Connecticut. Naromi’s properties feature a network of trails, totaling approximately 15 miles. Naromi was awarded an Excellence in Land Conservation Award for Outstanding Successful Collaboration for the Protection of Towner Hill by the Connecticut Land Conservation Council in 2009 for the purchase of the 80 acre ridge line forest now known as the Towner Hill Preserve with a large vernal pool, using a combination of federal, state, town, and land trust funds.
Naromi has a small Board of Directors that includes past Chairman of the Sherman Wetlands Commission, an attorney with extensive knowledge of land use issues, several local business owners, several financial experts, several people who are active in the schools and community groups in Sherman, and a horticulturalist.
