Clean Up for Earth Day 2015 !

Catch the Earth Awareness Month spirit! Clean up the environment in Westborough and your neighborhood on our local Earth Day, Saturday, April 25, 2015.

The Westborough Community Land Trust is sponsoring the Town-wide Litter Clean-up and invites all youth groups and families to pitch in. Early birds report at 6:30am to Bellows Rd. or West Meadow Plaza. Families report to Lake Chauncy Parking Lot at 9:30 a.m. for a site assignment. Come with enthusiasm, sturdy shoes, old clothes and work gloves--trash bags are provided.

Neighbors are also encouraged to clean up their neighborhood sidewalks and streets during the month of April. Together, we can make our shared home greener. For details, contact Town Clean-up Co-chairman Bruce Tretter at earthday@westboroughlandtrust.org.

As a reward, Mugford’s Flower Shop is offering a free bouquet of flowers to Clean-up participants.

Westborough Community Land Trust

flower/butterfly

The Westborough Community Land Trust (WCLT) is a private, member-supported, nonprofit organization. The trust was established in 1997 to preserve open space in response to increasing development pressures.

Our purpose is to safeguard land to meet the environmental, recreational, agricultural, and scenic needs of the Town of Westborough and to preserve open space and the character of the land.

We pursue these goals through the acquisition and stewardship of land, educational activities, and advocacy in regard to the health of waterways, aquifers, and watersheds.

To date WCLT has preserved more than 173 acres of land and acts as stewards for close to 400 acres in Westborough.

To carry on these activities, WCLT has Land Preservation, Stewardship, Education, Membership, and Finance Committees.

WCLT welcomes new members from Westborough and the greater community.

What are the advantages of a land trust?

As a nonprofit organization, a land trust such as the Westborough Community Land Trust is able to receive gifts of land, purchase open space, or secure conservation rights. It can negotiate with landowners and developers to achieve balanced growth and undertake creative fundraising for land acquisition. Unlike an official municipal body, a land trust can negotiate sensitive land acquisitions and pursue the financing needed to achieve them in a timely, flexible fashion.
