Due to excessive mudding and risk of trail damage all Falmouth Land Trust and Town of Falmouth trails are closed until further notice. We will be monitoring the trails weekly and opening them again when conditions are improved. Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to seeing you out there in the near future!

Hurricane Valley Farm Final Payment

In 2015, the Falmouth Land Trust protected Hurricane Valley Farm–one of the last intact, historic farms in town–prior to it being converted into a housing sub-division. The Trust raised funds from private and public sources to close on the 62-acre property and extinguished the subdivision order. We are working to restore the property to crop production with our partner Cultivating Community. However, FLT has a remaining debt of $20,000 that must be retired by December 2017.

For every $100 you donate to this cause, you will receive a free organic t-shirt with FLT’s new logo!

The Problem with Plastics Poster Contest

Our WINNERS are Paige Giard and Nate S.

This spring the Falmouth Land Trust (FLT) donated a water bottle filling station to the Falmouth Elementary School (FES). This filling station provides students and staff with cool clean water and encourages them to fill reusable water bottles rather than buying single use plastic water bottles. FES also ran a sale of water bottles to raise funds for another filling station. To celebrate the water filling station and water bottle sale, FLT held a poster contest for FES students. The posters had to show how we can reduce single use plastic consumption and reuse what we’ve already got. There were some great submissions and we are so excited to announce Paige Giard, a 4th grader at FES, and Nate S. as our winners. Congratulations!
