Tom Denney Nature Camp

Registration for summer camp is open! The Tom Denney Nature Camp, with Eco-Adventures for middle-schoolers, is held at Bowers Springs Conservation Area from July until August. It is as nature-immersed as a day camp for kids can be. Woods, fields, streams, ponds, trees, and trails. Register at http://tdnc.boltonconservationtrust.org/

All Bolton residents own the Bolton Conservation Trust land

The volunteers on the Trust team are Bolton residents who are the land stewards.

Our work complements that of the Bolton Conservation Commission. In comparison, the Commission is a Town board, appointed by the Board of Selectmen and tasked with regulatory functions Рincluding administering the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act (MGL Ch. 131.s 40) and the Bolton Wetland Law 1.18 Рand the maintenance of Town-owned conservation land. Conversely, we are an independent, all-volunteer, non-governmental organization. The Bolton Conservation Trust depends on membership support, both monetary and volunteering, to succeed in its mission. Please JOIN US!
