News and events for the Greater Worcester Land Trust
WORCESTER – The Greater Worcester Land Trust received its first gift of property near the Holden line on Dec. 6, 1995. Twenty-two years to the day, it bought the property across the street, securing a key connection linking 918 acres of the Four Town Greenway all the way up to Holden.
“Before (this property acquisition) there was 918 acres separated into two chunks,” said Colin Novick, executive director of the Greater Worcester Land Trust. “This puts the two chunks together.”
GWLT is grateful to the Greater Worcester Community Foundation for their critical support of the work we do here at GWLT, and for making the work of many non-profits possible. The GWCF helps makes the area we call home a greener, kinder, and better place to live.
Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at the Greater Worcester Land Trust, and from the wild turkeys who make their home in Moreland Woods.
Yale Environment 360 has a great article about how urban gardens and greenspace help sustain bees threatened by habitat loss, climate change, and pesticides.
Why fight the crowds when you can get outside? Here at GWLT, we’ll be celebrating Green Friday with a roughly 4-mile hike from 8 AM – 11 AM. The hike will start at Cascading Waters and go to the future Holbrook Forest on Salisbury Street on the Worcester/Holden line. Shuttle back to origin offered.
