New Project Alert!

New Project Alert! We received funding to develop a nature education curriculum for elementary school students. This curriculum would highlight the importance of healthy fish populations to humans and other wildlife, as well as discuss the general conservation and ecological balance of urban environments. Both indoor and outdoor learning experiences will be incorporated when feasible.

Remembering Donna Murray

It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of Donna Murray, a Land Trust Board Member and Volunteer.  We will miss Donna terribly, but her love of nature will live on. Donna was a strong believer in the value of outdoor education and we have renamed our field trip program in her memory.
