The impact of Greenbelt’s successful conservation efforts is felt for generations to come: the land is protected forever.
This year Greenbelt was able to open the sweeping Castle Neck River Reservation in Ipswich, a complex, multi-year project completed because of our strong partnerships in the community, our history and reputation, and our solid base of support from members like you.
The opening of Castle Neck River Reservation capped a terrific year in which Greenbelt conserved many more acres of important land for farming, wildlife habitat and scenic beauty.
What it takes to conserve land is a dedicated Greenbelt team with vision, expertise and determination.
The future holds wonderful opportunity and Greenbelt is delighted to be working on conservation and stewardship efforts that will have significant impact, and get so many people engaged with nature and out on the land.
The years ahead also present challenges, as land becomes more expensive and the changing climate threatens the resources and habitat we depend on.
The successes of 2019 – more land protection, growing membership, new events, expanded stewardship work – came on the heels of our 2018 leadership transition, confirming Greenbelt’s fundamental stability and resiliency as an organization and a community.
Please consider a generous gift before the end of the year to Greenbelt’s Annual Fund to support our operations – the work that we do. Your gift really is our impact.
Greenbelt is grateful to several professional and staff photographers whose work is featured prominently within our website.
