Save the Fyfeshire Ponds

are fighting to preserve a natural and historical treasure. The Massachusetts Office of Dam Safety has declared the dam in the Fyfeshire Conservation Area on Wattaquadock Hill Road unsafe, and has required the Town of Bolton to either repair or remove it. Fix health issues with levitra

About Clinton Greenway Conservation Trust
Who we are
The Clinton Greenway Conservation Trust is a land trust based in Clinton, Massachusetts, dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of open space. Like you, we want to protect the places we love and enjoy these outdoor treasures. Together, we protect the distinct character of Clinton.

location. As a land trust, we receive direct contributions of open parcels and hold conservation restrictions.
- Practice conservation through stewardship, acquisition of title, conservation easements, and encouraging other conservation restrictions.
- Facilitate public access to conserved spaces.
- Practice land stewardship for conserved spaces.
- Advocate for conservation land-use planning.
- Work with other land trusts, government agencies, watershed associations, educational institutions, and other organizations with similar interests.
What we are working on now
Town of Clinton Open Space Plan
The CGCT has been instrumental in the development and implementation of the Town of Clinton Open Space and Recreation Plans. Protection and access to these special places is our mission and highest priority.
Mass. Central Rail Trail
Beginning at North Station in Boston and ending in Northampton, the Mass Central Line came right through Clinton. Many portions of this inactive railroad line have been developed into multi-use rail trail. We have made it a priority to complete the Clinton portion that connects with Berlin and Hudson to the east and Sterling to the west.
Rauscher Farm was purchased by the Town of Clinton in June, 2008. This 62+/– acre parcel had been in agricultural use for several hundred years. Located on Clamshell Road, Rauscher Farm was the last working farm in Clinton. The Friends of Rauscher Farm, a subcommittee of CGCT, worked tirelessly to inform the townspeople of the tremendous opportunity to buy the farm and keep it as protected open space. Establishing trails, educational programs, and raising an endowment to provide for the ongoing maintenance and protection of the farm are high priorities. Thinking creatively, we have launched the Clinton Roll of Honor project
that celebrates community and contributes to the endowment.
