Give Back to the Land on Earth Day!
Wednesday, April 22, 2020

Parks, trails, greenways, conservation areas, farms: They matter now more than ever.

During this unprecedented time of anxiety and isolation, we’re so fortunate to have abundant open space in western Massachusetts. Nature has the power to soothe body, mind, and spirit alike.

Even as we observe physical distance from each other, the surrounding forests, waterways, and family farms provide us fresh air, clean water, and locally-grown food.

There’s no doubt we’re all in this together!

People like you make possible the work of non-profit land trusts to provide nature-based solutions that are essential to our well-being.

Right here in the Valley, your generous support for Kestrel Land Trust today will do so much good, including:

  • Protecting another 700 acres of forest on the Mount Holyoke and Mount Tom Ranges to expand recreational opportunities and protect wildlife habitat,
  • Creating the new Whately Center Woods with a network of trails on 120 acres near the center of town, a conservation effort championed by neighbors who love the land,
  • Ensuring local food security by conserving a 193-acre farm in North Hadley and North Amherst for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts.

As we celebrate today’s 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we invite you to give back to the land.

  • Your gift before midnight on April 22 will be matched by the Living Springs Foundation, doubling your impact for the land.
  • Give back to the land today, and you can provide 4 meals for the Food Bank of Western Mass with just an additional $1!

Click below to make a gift – of any amount – for Earth Day, for the Valley, for our community.
