THE WESTPORT LAND CONSERVATION TRUST (WLCT) HAS ADJUSTED SERVICES, EVENTS, AND OPERATIONS TO PROTECT OUR EMPLOYEES AND TOWN RESIDENTS, AND PREVENT FURTHER SPREAD OF COVID-19. WLCT OFFICES ARE CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC. PLEASE EMAIL US AT INFO@WESTPORTLANDTRUST.ORG OR CALL US AT (508) 636-9228 IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, FEEDBACK OR IDEAS.

WLCT’s 15 miles of trails remain OPEN for everyone to enjoy – within the current guidelines set by public officials. The outdoors provide a sense of tranquility and an opportunity to remain active and many of you have been outside safely enjoying our trails and open spaces. Please continue to do so as much as you safely can. The link above to mass.gov provides those current guidelines as they may be updated.
 
Going for walks in your neighborhood, walking around your yard to see spring emerging, or watching birds from your kitchen window are also opportunities to connect with nature. Connect with nature in any way you can to help boost your mental and physical health.
 
Thank you to the many WLCT supporters, volunteers, and friends who have helped protect WLCT’s 12 properties and 15 miles of trails. Because of YOU, we have these places to enjoy and take refuge in during this time of uncertainty.
