here does your money go? Membership fees translate into every facet of a strong, growing land trust. These funds provide the working foundation to allow us to:

  • Continue our excellent record in preserving and protecting our forest and farm land, watercourse and open space, and natural habitats of our native flora and fauna
  • Educate ourselves and our community on best practices, grant and advocacy opportunities, and environmental regulations and guidance
  • Produce educational and family programing, fundraising and partnered events
  • Maintaining our high-level monitoring, stewardship and land care programs

Membership keeps you, your friends, your neighbors, and your family involved and aware of the progress we make with your help, and the preservation issues we face that affect your town, your property values, and the quality of life in your own backyard. Joining as a Bridgewater Land Trust member opens a broader channel of communications for our organization and creates a wider base of actively interested, in- touch, and committed people, working together toward a lasting, grounded, common cause. Thank you for joining.

Give fools their gold, and knaves their power; let fortunes bubbles rise and fall; who sows a field, or trains a flower, or plants a tree, is more than all
