NORWALK, Conn. – Climate change will be discussed Sunday at the 40th annual meeting of The Norwalk Land Trust.

Naturalist Heather Crawford, a long-time advocate for environmental planning and conservation, will present a talk titled “Changing Times, Changing Landscape” at the meeting, which runs from 2 to 4 p.m. At the Rowayton Community Center, located at 33 Highland Ave. “This topic is so very timely because of the current interest in climate change and its effect on coastal landscapes, wildlife and the infiltration of invasive plant species that thrive in warmer climates,” a press release said.

The Norwalk Land Trust, a volunteer organization, invites the public to attend the meeting to help in protecting “Norwalk’s wonderful resources.”

“We have partnered with Boy Scouts, neighborhood associations, and the city in order to preserve and protect these valuable resources,” the release said. “To learn more details about our annual meeting and our 2012 accomplishments, please click on the link to our web site.”
