Save our Pollinators

Bees, birds, bats and butterflies are crucial to the sustainability of our food supply, but many people overlook the essential role these pollinators play in our lives. That perfect peach, tremendous tomato, or wholesome honey are just not possible if these crucial critters do not spread pollen and nectar from plant to plant. Whether it is the mighty Monarch butterfly or humble Mason Bee, our pollinators are in serious danger and they need your help! Here’s how you can support the sustainability of these small but mighty superheroes: (read more...)

WLT Seeking Volunteer Stewards

Interested in helping to maintain trails in Waltham? The Waltham Land Trust is looking for folks who would like to volunteer to be the “eyes and ears” of:

  • the Western Greenway Trail
  • Prospect Hill Park trails
  • the Mass Central Rail Trail
  • pathways along the Charles River
  • trails in Beaver Brook North and Historic reservations

As a WLT steward, you can be as involved as you want to be, from just reporting on trail conditions online, to picking up trash (we provide bags and gloves), to removing invasive plants and helping keep the trail sustainable.

You pick the place you want to "patrol" from the above locations. Once you've received the training and supplies needed, go out as often as you are able and have fun!

To learn more and receive a Steward Interest form, please call the WLT office at 781-893-3355 or email WLT Program Director Sonja Wadman at swadman@walthamland

Western Greenway head steward Bob Jutstrom (in safety vest), Joel Angiolillo, and Eric Olson (also a Western Greenway steward and our invasive plants expert) take a break from National Trails Day work on June 4, 2016.

The Waltham Land Trust’s mission is to create a legacy of land conservation in Waltham by promoting, protecting, restoring, and acquiring open space.

We envision growth in public appreciation of natural resources, preservation and restoration of native habitat, and increased biodiversity to foster a healthier environment.


What are the natural features which make a township handsome? A river, with its waterfalls and meadows, a lake, a hill, a cliff or individual rocks, a forest, and ancient trees standing singly. Such things are beautiful; they have a high use which dollars and cents never represent. If the inhabitants of a town were wise, they would seek to preserve these things, though at considerable expense; for such things educate more than any hired teachers or preachers, or at any present recognized system of school education. -- Henry David Thoreau
