Shurtleff Woods: Newly acquired land and trail

The BCTrust purchased this 13 acre parcel from the Shurtleff family in 2015. With its valuable wildlife habitat including vernal pools, wetland buffer and a mixed deciduous-coniferous wooded upland, it enhances the conservation value of the town-owned Patch Hill land. A half-mile looped trail has been blazed and is accessible from the Patch Hill trails.

New Web Design and New Facebook Page

fbThe BCTrust is pleased to welcome you to our new web pages. We’ve made a few changes to the design (and more will be coming), but the main reason for change was to allow the board members to easily edit and add new information about the Trust’s conservation efforts.

This has allowed us to add secure e-commerce, so that you can renew your membership and donate online. We’ll be working on more content over the coming months, including the new Shurtleff Woods and Inches Woods.

We’re also delighted to announce our new Facebook Page (, where we hope you will contribute pictures and trail reports.
