Caring for our World here at Home

Woods & Waters, the Essex Land Trust’s newsletter, is published three times a year and reaches over 400 members and supporters. Its aim is to share news of developments in the Essex Land Trust, feature articles about projects in which the land trust has been involved, recognize volunteers who have made substantial contributions, and educate members on the value of a healthy natural environment which the land trust is committed to protect in perpetuity.

The land trust gratefully acknowledges The Carlson Family Foundation for its generous support in sponsoring the costs associated with the printing and mailing of Woods & Waters
