Stockbridge, MA
– The Land Trust will hold our annual meeting on Sunday, October 1, 2023 at 10:00 AM.  Note this event has been rescheduled due to rain. This event is open to members and to the public.  The meeting site will be one of the Land Trust’s oldest properties, the Stockbridge Chestnut Preserve on Route 7, south of the town center in Stockbridge, MA. There is ample parking at the site, and light refreshments will be served. Besides very brief business at the meeting, we will hear more about how the Fenn Farm property off of Cherry Hill Road is saved and what its future holds.  We will also discuss how the Land Trust partners with landowners, conservation organizations like Laurel Hill Association and Berkshire Natural Resources Council, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to conserve land in Stockbridge.

Lastly, we would very much like to hear from anyone who might be interested in joining in our work to preserve and improve our wonderful town. If you would like to learn more about opportunities to become involved, please email us at
