Annual Meeting 2017

Where: 185 Main Street (the Roemer's historic home and Blacksmith Shop, abutting the Lime Kiln Conservation Area) Enjoy a historic tour of the property at 2 pm, followed by the Annual Meeting with refreshments at 3 pm. We'll highlight the past year's activities and accomplishments, and discuss short-term plans.

(Please do not park in the main Bolton Springs Farm parking area.) *** We'll finish with plenty of time to get to the Picnic with the Pops concert (5 pm) on the Bolton Town Common. ***

Concerts on the Common: Picnic with the Pops

To say THANK YOU to all of you, the Bolton Conservation Trust invites you, your family and friends to our first-ever Concert on the Common featuring the 65-person symphonic wind ensemble Concord Band. "Picnic with the Pops" will take place on Sunday, June 4th at 5pm. Please feel free to bring blankets, chairs and, of course, your picnic basket. Some refreshments will be sold. Please plan to park at Trinity Church (handicap and/or elderly parking available at the Common). Admission is free, courtesy of the Trust and our way of saying THANK YOU!

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 – including administering the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act (MGL Ch. 131.s 40) and the Bolton Wetland Law 1.18 – and 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!
