Membership & Trails Annual Campaign

Dear Friends of Wintonbury Land Trust,

What a year! Stewardship work parties turned into solo affairs. Nature lectures became webinars. Our Wine & Dine fundraising dinner transformed into a Take-Home Harvest Dinner. Yet we also received the last piece of Beacon Hill Preserve and dedicated Evans Family Meadows. A new family began farming at Hawk Hill Farm. Volunteers got a donated tractor in working order. And more people found respite during the pandemic by exploring our trails!

Generous donors have pledged to double up to $7,000 in year-end contributions to improve and expand those trails!
  • Construct a new trail in the Evans Family Meadows that crosses Wash Brook, with connections to Reservoir #3 and the planned East Coast Greenway.
  • Improve and extend an existing path through the woods atop Beacon Hill Preserve to also connect to Reservoir #3.
  • Continue to ensure signs and trail conditions in Speer Preserve, Hawk Hill Farm, etc. are welcoming to the increased number of new visitors.

Expenses are estimated to be $25,000, for which we already have $11,000. So it’s simple: make a year-end donation to our Trails Fund, and it will be doubled up to $7,000. Please donate below.

It’s also that time of year to renew your annual January-December membership for 2021. Membership dues help cover the Land Trust’s important operational expenses including insurance and stewardship activities such as replanting storm-damaged trees and repairing the foundations of our historic barns. Please renew or join below.

Can the Land Trust count on your continued support to connect people to nature, conserve natural resources, and protect local farms? We can’t do it without you!

With appreciation,

The Wintonbury Land Trust Board of Directors
