Proud Stewards of the town's portion of the Bay Circuit Trail
What are the natural features which make a township handsome? A river, with it's waterfalls and meadows, a lake, a hill, a cliff, or individual rocks, a forest, and ancient trees standing singly. Such things are beautiful; they have a high use which dollars and cents never represent. If the inhabitants of a town were wise, they would seek to preserve these things...for such things educate more than any hired teachers or preachers.
--Henry David Thoreau, 1861--
"Our mission is to preserve properties of significant scenic, historic, and ecological value in our community for passive public use, recreational enjoyment, and for natural undisturbed wildlife habitat."
All meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at 7pm in the first floor Conference Room at Town Hall (except Holidays). Alternate meeting dates will be posted accordingly.

We are currently seeking enthusiastic people interested in volunteering a few hours each month to help protect and maintain the natural landscape and overall scenic beauty of our community.
Students are also welcome and encouraged to get involved with natural resource protection through education, open space preservation and land management. We would also enjoy the opportunity to connect the community by asigning interested residents to become stewards of the Bay Circuit Trail.
Bulletin: We will be scheduling a trek along the towns’ portion of the Bay Circuit trail in late June (date to be announced soon). We will begin on Pleasant St.at Maple St. and end at the War Memorial Park on River St. at the Arch St. Bridge. The selected hike is approximately 4 miles and takes approximately 2 hours. For more information, please call 508-894-4073 or email email@example.com for details. Lets all get active and enjoy our natural resources.
Open Space Plan Update: We are asking residents for any useful information regarding sensitive wetlands, wildlife habitats, migratory areas and any other special places you feel should be protected and included in our Open Space Plan Update. We appreciate all information.
Remember: Farmland, open fields and meadows and wooded forests won't last forever if we don't work together to preserve and manage them. It takes people like YOU to help preserve the natural scenic character of our community for the future by helping to preserve it NOW. Ask how you can get involved.
