We had a great turnout and lovely weather for the walk. Gary led us through this parcel we hope to purchase in June of this year.

Proposed Trail from Grace Pond to Angelica

Posted February 16th, 2011 in Event, News by Charles Radville

Hi Everyone,
I want to let everyone know that on Sunday, Feb. 27, at 8:00 AM,  there will be a walk of one of our next planned trails.
The Fuchs boys, who developed and built the Hiller Trail, will lead a walk of the trail which they have grossly marked. It will extend from the Grace Pond along Old Slough Road in a southerly direction down to Angelica Ave.
We will meet at the parking area at the end of Bowman Road and proceed along the trail to Grace Pond. From there we will walk the proposed route to Angelica Ave. and then back to the parking area.
Sorry about the time but these kids have a full schedule. I hope that you can attend.

The Southeastern Massachusetts Land Trusts Convocation was organized by The Compact of Cape Cod Conservation Trusts on Saturday, February 5, 2011 in Bourne.

Speakers covered a range of subjects from trail construction, fundraising, land preservation and “Undevelopment” of damaged lands back to their original, natural state. The convocation was both educational and inspiring and left all board members with a renewed energy and commitment to the importance of preserving open space in Mattapoisett for future generations to enjoy.

Walk the Brownell Property with Us!

The Mattapoisett Land Trust invites the public to join members and friends on Saturday, February 12, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm as we visit the Brownell parcel, the property that the MLT hopes to acquire in June of this year. We’ll examine the current condition of the blueberry orchard and proceed along the existing trails to the stone wall on the southern boundary. The walk will demonstrate why the Brownell parcel is an important addition to the holdings of the Land Trust but it will also offer a chance to experience the beauty of the winter woods.

All interested walkers should meet at the Friends Meeting House at 1:00 pm from where the group will proceed across Route 6 past the Martocci Preserve. Drinks and snacks will be provided. In case of inclement weather, or if the snow is too deep, we will try again at 1:00 pm on Saturday, February 19.  For more information call 774-377-9191, or email
