Once again local Boy Scout Troop 93 has come together to help out with conservation in Falmouth by assisting with the maintenance and improvement of Blackstrap Hill Preserve.

Troop 93 members help roll a birch off of the red trail in Blackstrap Hill Preserve.

Fifteen scouts and several parents spent Saturday May 6th clearing trees, trimming back paths, hiking out debris, and repairing the southern parking lot entrance.

A nasty pothole in the BHP parking lot.

Repair materials for the parking lot were graciously donated by the Town of Falmouth.

The nicely repaired parking lot, including improved grading between the street and the curb.

The FLT thanks Troop 93 for their ongoing commitment to improving open space in Falmouth and we look forward to working more with the Troop in the future.

The Falmouth Land Trust will be opening all public trails this week. Please bear with us as signs are taken down and lots opened. When using the trails please be mindful that they are still not hardened and take care not to introduce additional mudding damage by skirting difficult sections. Please obey all signs posted, and pack out anything you take in, including animal waste.

If you notice areas of trail in need of remediation please contact info@falmouthlandtrust.org. We will be working on trails in the coming weeks to repair damage, remove downed trees, and improve signage.

Thank you for your support of conservation in Falmouth and we look forward to seeing you out there!

Partial Trails Opening

Apr 282018

The Falmouth Land Trust has traditionally closed trails during April’s mud season, as do many other Land Trusts and open space managers. Damage to our trail system, infrastructure, and parking lots at this time of year can result in significant and costly repairs. We understand that this closure can be difficult for people who are eager to get out and enjoy open space – and beautiful spring weather! THANK YOU for your continued patience and respect. We anticipate being able to open most trails soon if the weather cooperates.

In the meantime, we wanted to let you know that the following locations are open for your enjoyment in Falmouth as of 28th of April:

Pine Grove (Rt. 88)
Mackworth Island
Gilsland Farm
The Woodman Property (Johnson Road)
Community Parks Trails (Winn Rd)
