On May 10, 2014 we gathered at the waterfront Munro Preserve to unveil a plaque honoring the original directors and officers of the Mattapoisett Land Trust. We were fortunate to have several of the founding members attending the dedication. Without their determination and hard work, preservation of open space in Mattapoisett got a strong start. Thank you all for giving us the organization that has grown over the past forty years.
Come to the festival and stop by our booth July 20-21. We have information on progress at the Brownell blueberry patch. Here is a photo of new growth on one of the hundreds of plants.
Come and learn more about our work to preserve and maintain open space for your enjoyment.

The Mattapoisett Land Trust acquired the Brownell Preserve in 2011 with the hope that it would one day be able to restore the overgrown blueberry orchard. Private contributions, including a Community Grant from the Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation, provided the funds to enable the MLT to hire professionals who removed the forest cover this winter. Now the MLT needs volunteers to complete the clean-up by collecting the debris that litters the orchard’s rows.
The MLT is inviting everyone interested in helping restore the blueberry orchard to join us at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 27, for a couple of hours of community service. Volunteers should meet in the parking lot of the Friends Meeting House on Route 6 before proceeding onto the Brownell Preserve. Tools will be provided but gloves and boots are highly recommended. For more information call 774-377-9191 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Share a couple hours in service to celebrate Earth Day
