The Bolton Conservation Trust

The Bolton Conservation Trust has embarked on an exciting initiative. Please join us in envisioning and supporting the creation of a vibrant Town Common in the heart of Bolton.  

“Stop the Pipeline” Nature Walk, November 8

Perhaps you've noticed the "Stop the Pipeline" signs around town and wondered what all the concern is about.

Join the Bolton Conservation Commission, the Bolton Conservation Trust and Stop the Pipeline/Bolton on Saturday, November 8th at 1 p.m. for a nature walk along part of the proposed pipeline route near Randall Road.

We will hike the trails through one of Bolton's most pristine conservation areas, see beautiful views of vernal pool habitat from a ledge overlook and talk about the possible impact to the conservation land and adjoining private land, if the pipeline project is approved.

Please park along the paved portion of Randall Road or Rocky Dundee Road. We will meet at the beginning of the dirt section of Randall Road at the intersection with Rocky Dundee.

The walk will be held in good and fair weather but cancelled in heavy rain. Wear shoes/boots that provide ankle support and traction.

For further information please contact: Carol Gumbart (weekdays) at 978-779-3304, concomm@townofbolton.com or Betsy Taylor-Kennedy
betsy@taylor-kennedy.com

For more information about the proposed pipeline, join stopthepipeline_bolton on Yahoo Groups or contact BoltonGasPipeline@comcast.net. Find more information about the Pipeline at MassPLAN.org and NoFrackedGasInMass.org including Bolton's page in the "Town by Town" section, and at www.townofbolton.com.
