As a teacher/naturalist at Drumlin Farm, I have been working with the Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust (LPCT) for over five years. Together with the Stewardship through Leadership program (STL),we have been doing programs with Lowell schools, Spindle City Core and other community organizations. Our joint programs have involved activities like urban ecology. The students at both the Robinson Middle School and Daley Middle School have planted trees made available by LPCT.
Another nexample of the STL program: Last summer STL worked with the Spindle City Core. These high school and college youth removed invasives and trash, created a new trail (Cardinal Flower Trail) and an interpretive guideguide for the Concord River Greenway (CRG).
LPCT was very involved in the the creation of the CRG a beautiful open space along the Concord River.
I could add many other examples.
I wish every community had a Land Conservation Trust like the LPCT

Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust is a professionally run organization doing great work in conservation and environmental education in the city of Lowell. Their work is literally transforming this amazing city through increased greenspace and sharing these natural resources with the residents of Lowell.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The positive change in the community as a result of land protected, the Concord River Greenway, and the positive impact on Lowell's youth as they learn about and protect Lowell's natural resources.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ensure that they have resources for years to come so that that they can increase their positive impact in Lowell. It would be great if LP&CT had a full-time educator who could plan and teach more programs for the youth and families in Lowell.
