Learn about the work of the Stockbridge Land Trust at its annual meeting on Saturday, September 29th, at 10 a.m. The meeting will take place at the Chestnut Preserve on Route 7, south of the town center. There is ample parking at the site and there will be light refreshments. (Rain date: Sept. 30th, 10 a.m., Chestnut Preserve.)
TAKE THE HIGH ROAD is the meeting's main topic. Jenny Hansell, president of Berkshire Natural Resources Council, will speak about BNRC's ambitious program to create a "High Road" – a hiking path that will traverse Berkshire County. The mission of BNRC is the same as that of the Land Trust, but its geographic scope is broader: the whole of the Berkshires.
Since its founding in 1987, the Stockbridge Land Trust has worked to preserve Stockbridge's open spaces, forests, farmlands, wetlands, waterways, and other natural resources. Learn about the properties the Land Trust protects by visiting its website – www.stockbridgelandtrust.org.
