Harvard Conservation Trust New Year’s Walk

Per tradition, the Harvard Conservation Trust will ring in the New Year with a stroll among Harvard’s forests and fields. Nothing sets the tone for the year ahead like a leisurely walk with friends and neighbors in the crisp rejuvenating air of January. The walk will take place at 11:00am. HCT Membership not required. Location details will be provided at sign up. The walk will require a moderate level of fitness. Hiking poles, or good foot traction will be helpful if conditions are icy. Expect the walk to take approximately 1 hour. Dress for comfort and warmth. In the event of hazardous weather, the walk will be cancelled. Registration is necessary at : http://bit.ly/HCTNewYear.  Happy New Year from HCT!

Honoring the Memory of Marylynn

We are saddened to share the news of the passing of HCT’s first Executive Director, Marylynn Gentry (read obituary). Marylynn was a leader, a passionate naturalist, and a committed champion of land conservation in Harvard and beyond.  She will be greatly missed and the example she set will continue to inspire our work for years to come.
