This Earth Day, April 22, I invite you to join me in celebrating the beauty and bounty of our planet. When I am out exploring our trails, streams, farms, and gardens, my experiences reaffirm that what land trusts offer is essential. With each conservation project we create opportunities to better understand that we are linked in an ongoing, reciprocal relationship with our environment. When we protect nature, we protect ourselves. Earth Day reminds us that we are not alone in this work. We belong to a much bigger community and our everyday decisions really matter.
For the first time, NCLT is participating in Give Back to the Land Day with six other Massachusetts land trusts. Together, we are encouraging our communities to help save the land that supports us all.
The third annual Give Back to the Land Day on Friday, April 22, will be a 24-hour online giving day to raise funds for these 7 regional land trusts that work to conserve trails, forests, farms, and waterways in Massachusetts.
Community members are invited to visit GiveBacktotheLand.org to learn about the work of local land trusts and donate to one or more of the organizations. As a land-based conservation organization, our role is clear, and your partnership is essential. Your generosity means we can keep working for healthy lands, healthy people and healthy communities throughout north central MA.
When you support NCLT, your gift will be matched through the generosity of an anonymous donor.
The participating organizations in Give Back to the Land Day are: Berkshire Natural Resources Council, Kestrel Land Trust, Hilltown Land Trust, Franklin Land Trust, Mount Grace Land Conservation Trust, North County Land Trust and Pascommuck Conservation Trust, Inc.
or by mail to North County Land Trust at 325 Lindell Ave, Leominster, MA 01453. Designate “Give Back to the Land Day” on your check.
