Trust(ees) in Nature
The Trustees is celebrating its 125th anniversary with a bounty of events across The Berkshires
It has been proven by science, and unofficially by the rest of us, that wiling away hours in nature is a cure-all for the ills of the modern world. No one knows this better than the Trustees of Reservations, the oldest statewide land-conservation group in the country.
The Trustees is celebrating its 125th anniversary with a bounty of events across the region, including a Garden Party at the Naumkeag property in Stockbridge on July 23, 2016. The guest list includes honorary co-chairs Yo-Yo Ma and Jill Horner. (For more info, call 978-921-1944 ext. 1835.) Other Trustees properties in the Berkshires include Monument Mountain, Bartholomew’s Cobble, and Notchview.
All events—which have jumped from 900 to 4,200 annually statewide—engage the community, says regional director Joanna Ballantine. “We’re gaining a new demographic and cultivating the next generation of volunteers. People are seeking special time with their kids in these special places.”
