About Us

The New Canaan Beautification League is a nonprofit community service and educational organization in New Canaan, Connecticut. Founded in 1939 to beautify the community and to provide members with an opportunity to increase their knowledge of gardening, conservation and horticulture, the Beautification League has continued to dedicate itself to enhancing the beauty of our town.

Our members range in age and include new residents as well as those who have lived here for many years. The level of our gardening expertise varies widely. We welcome novices, experts and everyone in between to join our monthly programs and activities, which are free and open to the public.

Membership is open to all. Monthly lectures or workshop meetings are held from October to June and are open to the public unless otherwise noted. Additional activities offered include field trips, garden tours and many civic beautification projects around New Canaan.
