Last night at the Auburn town meeting, the town agreed to grant an easement on town-owned land to the Greater Worcester Land Trust for access to our conservation area (map & easement detail below). Many thanks to the voters of Auburn for their support.

GWLT is part of a 15-organization coalition saying “Yes for a Better Worcester” that includes open space, historic resources, and affordable housing.
Come join GWLT for a day in the park! We will be there with a Property Sign frame for Sibley Farm and will be having folks “chip in” with cutting out the mortises for the Timber Frame.
We will also have coloring sheets for kids, trail maps for adults, and advice on the best Spring hikes in town.
Hope to see you there!
