2015 Nov–Dec Events
Most often the Land Trust works with land owners to protect the working lands they have loved and managed to assure that the natural assets of the land will be available for future generations. Less frequently the Trust works to purchase land that has been identified as significant for its natural resources, location, or cultural significance. Noyes Mountain is both.
Funding Noyes Mountain Preserve Foot by Foot
The Trust needs to raise $300,000 to purchase Noyes Mountain. A donation of $2,000 will secure one foot of the 1,500' peak. Challenge your family, team up with friends
and help buy the mountain foot by foot.
Please make a tax-deductible donation or a pledge today.
No contribution is too small: every inch helps!
