Welcome

Come enjoy our Nichols Nature Preserve, donated to the GRTA  by Herbert J. Nichols, Jr. and others as open conservation land. It is a 94-acre property with meadows, forests, ponds and swamps. Here, volunteer conservationists have ongoing projects that help some endangered insect pollinators and a variety of bird populations. This diverse and beautiful property is open to all nature enthusiasts for walking, horseback riding, fishing, jogging, bird watching, cross-country skiing and peaceful picnicking by a pond. 

We now have the Nichols Endowment Fund. Please consider contributing to the future of open space preservation. Ask your tax adviser about a stock donation or send a check. To contribute online, use the donate button below and be sure to write a note that states it’s for the Nichols Endowment Fund.

We employ a full-time land manager to help maintain the trails on properties belonging to the Audubon, Greenwich Land Trust, The Nature Conservancy, the Gimbel Sanctuary,  the Boys Scouts and the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich, as well as town parks such as The Byram River Gorge, Babcock Preserve and The Mianus River State Park Scenic Reserve. All these open spaces are free for all nature enthusaists to enjoy.

As a 501(c)(3) , all contributions are tax deductible to the extent provided by the law. We are an independent, self-supporting group that neither seeks nor obtains community funds.

Give the gift of open space preservation. Become a member with a CREDIT CARD or a CHECK or give a GIFT MEMBERSHIP  to a friend. There is no wrapping and it's tax-deductible !
