Boxborough Conservation Trust

The Boxborough Conservation Trust is a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, created in 1997 to protect Boxborough's rural character and natural resources by protecting agricultural and undeveloped land, wildlife habitat, and important features of historical or geological significance for public benefit.

To achieve the BCTrust goals of land preservation, public education, and stewardship, the BCTrust:

  • Assists local landowners to identify land preservation options;
  • Explores opportunities to acquire or to preserve undeveloped land with Boxborough’s Town boards and commissions;
  • Acquires land in fee or accepts conservation restrictions;
  • Sponsors educational hikes and lectures on naturalist topics;
  • Engages the students at Blanchard Memorial Elementary School in annual writing and art design competitions;
  • Publishes a bi-annual newsletter, Common Ground;
  • Contributes funds and volunteer labor for the maintenance of trails and restoration of habitat.
