Baxter Outdoors Blackstrap Off-Road Classic
Baxter Outdoors will be running their second Blackstrap Off-Road Classic this year on the 15th of July at Blackstrap Hill Preserve. This 5km trail run will take place mostly on single-track, multi-purpose trails and will be followed with snacks and cool down beers for all racers over 21.
Troop 93 Clears Blackstrap Hill Preserve
Taking advantage of seasonable weather and a dry spell on Saturday, April 29, members of Boy Scout Troop 93 set off for Blackstrap Hill Preserve to help clear trails with rakes and clippers in hand. The 280-acre Preserve, which is owned and maintained by the Falmouth Land Trust (FLT), is the largest block of contiguous, protected open space in town, boasting several miles of hiking and mountain biking trails.
The Scouts were joined by troop leaders and parents, as well as Town Councilor Caleb Hemphill and FLT Board Member Ted Asherman, who led the boys in their work. The Falmouth Land Trust actively welcomes volunteers and community service projects among the town’s civic and nonprofit organizations.

FES and FLT Partner on Water Bottle Filler
Falmouth Elementary School and the Falmouth Land Trust are working together to provide the elementary school with water bottle refilling stations for students. Our goal is to provide students with fresh filtered and chilled water and at the same time to reduce the plastic waste from single use bottles. If you have a child in the elementary school they should have received a flyer detailing the initiative.
