The colors of autumn highlight the natural beauty of Stockbridge. And much of that beauty is a product of conservation restrictions obtained by the Stockbridge Land Trust.

Since its founding in 1987, the Land Trust’s fifteen member board of directors has worked to preserve Stockbridge’s open spaces, forests, farmlands, wetlands, waterways, and other natural resources.


We invite you to learn more about the work of the Land Trust at its annual meeting on Saturday, September 29th, at 10 a.m. (rain date: Sunday, September 30, 2018 at 10 a.m.)  The meeting will take place at one of the Land Trust’s most prized properties, the Stockbridge Chestnut Preserve on Route 7, south of the town center. There is ample parking at the site and there will be light refreshments.

TAKE THE HIGH ROAD– that is the main topic at this year’s meeting. Our speaker will be Jenny Hansell, president of Berkshire Natural Resources Council. The mission of BNRC is the same as that of the Land Trust but its geographic scope is broader: the whole of the Berkshires. Jenny’s presentation will focus primarily upon BNRC’s ambitious program to create a “High Road” – a hiking path that will traverse Berkshire County.
