Naromi Land Trust
Sherman and New Milford
Naromi Land Trust derived its name from the Naromiyocknowhusunkatankshunk (pronounced Naromi yock now husunk atank shunk) Brook, an aboriginal word which means “water flowing from the hills.” The brook of the same name runs through Sherman along Church Road and under Route 39 North.
That alone is enough to make Naromi one of my favorite land trusts. But beyond that infinite coolness, its land is in Sherman. And Sherman has some great landscapes. Truly stunning stuff. Additionally, one of their trails connects to the granddaddy of them all – the mighty Appalachian Trail! Yeah, I dig Naromi.
And they know what they’ve got:
We are blessed with open space, working farms, tranquil ponds, scenic vistas, and an abundance of wildlife. These natural assets are the common wealth – our common wealth. They make this community worth living in. They’ve been the context for our town’s character and values and social fabric for hundreds of years. We exist to serve you and your loved ones – to provide tranquility, rural character, and recreational opportunities.
Sherman’s natural wealth belongs to all of us. Every one of us benefits from it. Share our pride in Sherman’s open spaces, wildlife habitats, water quality, agricultural lands and scenic vistas.
