Nice Laurel Lake Trout for Dinner!
Toole Wildlife Preserve in the fall
Storytellers Amy Lafave, Gige Darey, Olga Weiss & George Wislocki regaled us with historical & humorous stories of land deals at our Annual Meeting & Community Conversation, November 9th, 2017 at Lenox Community Center.
Many joined us Thursday, November 8, 7:00 pm at the Lenox Community Center for unabashed appreciation of our natural environment, with dessert, for this year’s Lenox Land Trust 2018 Annual Meeting & Community Conversation: TREES & TRAILS. Peter Tucker, forester, educated us on the benefits of forestry management plans, using Post Farm as an example. BNRC's Jenny Hansell shared future plans for The High Road and how to get there.
The Parsons Marsh Trail Grand Opening Event, Lenox, was Saturday, September 15th, and over 200 people attended! This trail, including its boardwalks, was then closed for several weeks to complete final construction, but is now fully open to the public. BNRC & LLT co-hosted guided public walks there in mid-October, & we expect there will be more.

Post Farm Walk-Around -
Two dozen folks joined us at Post Farm on Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017, to explore this 225 acre conserved property along the Housatonic River. Ideas for increased signage, etc. were shared. This free fall foliage Walk-Around was sponsored by Lenox Land Trust.
Recognizing the pressures on land use and also recognizing the rights of individual property owners, the Lenox Land Trust believes that it is imperative to preserve and maintain the rural New England character of Lenox and the surrounding area for present and future generations.
The Lenox Land Trust works with the Town of Lenox, the Berkshire Natural Resources Council, the Massachusetts Audubon Society, Massachusetts Land Trust Coalition and other organizations to achieve these goals.
