#GivingTuesday -- December 2

Waltham Land Trust hopes you'll donate to create a legacy of land conservation


You've heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, how about #GivingTuesday? Taking place on December 2 – the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday aims to create a national movement around the holiday season dedicated to giving back. Coinciding with the Land Trust's end of year appeal, #GivingTuesday offers a pleasant reminder of the true spirit of the season, provides a healthy balance to the huge spending associated with the days after Thanksgiving, and helps local causes like the Waltham Land Trust reach our year-end goals.

Be a part of the movement and make a donation to the Waltham Land Trust on Tuesday, December 2 (or anytime between now and December 31). When you do, you'll be joining thousands of others around the world who are choosing to spend their money supporting local causes.

Rather donate your time? Email Sonja to volunteer to help steward our trails, put together our mailings, find us more funding, expand our membership, and more.

Stay tuned for future postings about #GivingTuesday and the Waltham Land Trust!

Waltham Land Trust Celebrates
Fifteen Years of Incorporation at 15th Annual Meeting


In 1999, members of neighborhood associations, community activists, environmentalists, conservationists, and "just plain folks" came to together to found the Waltham Land Trust.

Hard to believe that was fifteen years ago!

Since then, the WLT has accomplished a great deal creating a legacy of land conservation in Waltham.

At our 15th Annual Meeting on October 23rd, members of the Board reviewed our highlights in saving land, building trails, making maps, educating the public, and raising funds. Download the slideshow presentation for more info.

We also discussed our plans for the future, much of which focuses on the Mass Central Rail Trail.   Inge Uhlir Environmentalist of the Year, Laurel Carpenter, shared slides about the MCRT from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation & Recreation. Download the MCRT slideshow presentation to learn more.

Finally, current paying members of the WLT voted in three new Board Directors (Natalie Berland, Martha Creedon, and Brian McCormick) and three returning Directors (Betsy Lewenberg, Joyce Nett, and Diana Young). Toscini's ice cream, cookies, and other goodies were enjoyed afterwards while WLT supporters mingled with one another. See pictures of the evening.

We're looking forward to the next fifteen years!

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
