Vote to Improve the Western Greenway Trail

If you are a Waltham resident, you can help us improve the Western Greenway trail by going to Belmont Savings Bank’s charitable giving program and voting for the Waltham Land Trust. If we receive the highest number of votes, we would get $10,000 to pay for more Western Greenway trail maps, more aluminum locator maps along the trail, plus tools and training for two years of Western Greenway volunteer stewards. Vote now (once per device) and help us spread the word until the voting ends at 5 p.m. on Friday, May 27.

The Western Greenway trail, our fantastic community resource, thanks you!

Duke Robillard ROCKED the
Green Space Blues Jam

Thanks to everyone who came to the 12th Annual Green Space Blues Jam on Saturday, May 21, at the Hobbs Brook Facility located at 175 Wyman Street. Duke Robillard, the evening’s star entertainment, was amazing! No wonder he has been the recipient of numerous blues guitarist awards in the US and abroad.

We are currently contacting winners of silent auction items to arrange payment and pick-up options.

We'd like to thank the following generous sponsors of the 2016 Green Space Blues Jam: Hobbs Brook Management,,, the Nelson Companies, Boston Properties, the Elinor and Jack Marcou Charitable Foundation, Boston Bark, Dion's, and Boston Beer Company.

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

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
