CCT 2015: The Year in Review

November  2015

A Message from CCT President, Debbie Shadd

Dear Friend of the Cohasset Conservation Trust,

The CCT Newsletter is going digital! This will allow us to devote more of our resources to our core mission of land conservation and property stewardship.

We've had a lot to celebrate this year, including the acquisition of a new property, Wheelwright Highlands, a very successful Edible Plant Walk, a table at the Cohasset Farmers Market, hosting a Quest at Great Brewster Woods, and work with a number of other local organizations. We hope you enjoy reading about all this and more in the articles which follow.

Thank you as always for your support of our work!

We Love to Talk about Land Conservation

This summer, the Gulf Association invited the CCT to speak at one of their meetings. With two properties on the Gulf River (Pegram Preserve and Dormitzer Salt Marsh) the CCT has shared interests and concerns with the Gulf Association. A productive exchange of ideas took place.

In August, CCT President Debbie Shadd and Director Jeff Waal made a presentation to the Rotary Club of Cohasset. The Rotarians asked great questions and a lively discussion about land conservation ensued.

If your business or organization would like to host a presentation, please email us.

Please make a donation to support our maintenance efforts

While the Directors do a lot of the maintenance and volunteers make a huge contribution, services such as clearing fallen or dead trees, mowing fields, removing poison ivy, and surveying property boundaries must be contracted out to professionals.

After a historic winter and a dry summer, there was a lot of maintenance to be done in 2015. Even a small donation makes a big difference and is greatly appreciated.

To make a contribution, click on the pennies or mail a check to the Cohasset Conservation Trust, PO Box 314, Cohasset MA 02025.
