In keeping with the Chamber's mission of “Connecting The Community With Commerce” this Calendar was created to allow member businesses and New Canaan based non-profits to promote their upcoming events to the public. The Community Calendar is a local resource for all residents and visitors and has quickly become one of the most visited pages on the site. Events can be submitted via the link below and will be reviewed and posted within 24-48 hours.

Join the New Canaan Land Trust on National Trails Day
June 5 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join us in celebrating National Trails Day by helping to build and maintain trails at the New Canaan Land Trust’s Colhoun Preserve!
We will have a range of volunteer opportunities, suitable for all ages and skill levels. The main project will include the construction of new boardwalks that will span wetlands and facilitate trail navigation. Volunteers will help carry materials to the building site and assemble 100+ feet of new boardwalks. Other opportunities will include delineating existing trails by lining them with logs, and collecting litter from the trails and parking area.
To participate, sign up for a 90-minute time slot using the link, below. Join us from either 9:00am-10:30am, or 10:30am-noon, and indicate which activity you would like to help with.
Should enough volunteers be interested, we will make available additional volunteer opportunities at another preserve.
Volunteers are encouraged to bring work gloves, water, insect repellent, and/or sunscreen.
