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!

Recently the Portland Press Herald discussed an upcoming meeting of regional planners to discuss the possibility of converting the B&M rail line for mixed-use trail for walking and cycling.
A public meeting about the proposal will be held at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 13 at Lunt Auditorium in Falmouth. We encourage you to attend and provide your feedback!
The Portland Press-Herald discussed Hurricane Valley Farm in an article about Cultivating Community’s lease of the property.
There was also a write-up in the Forecaster discussing the lease of Hurricane Valley Farm.
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!
