Trees, wildlife, river, history, people, and important places. The Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust strives to connect people to the place where they live. Through their evolving and innovative programming, the Trust builds a sense of place for the people of Lowell.

The dedication from staff and leadership is unmatched by any other organization. They always strive to connect people to the place in which the live, getting folks to understand that they don't have to leave the city limits to find beauty, intrigue, and nature right in their backyard.

I am a proud donor to LPCT and continue to be impressed by their ability to innovate, create, and succeed in such an efficient way for such a small organization!

Explore the urban environment with new eyes. With LP&CT you can learn how to maple sugar, track wildlife, or identify birds. You can also get involved as a land steward, join a river clean-up, or be a mentor in the after-school program. Their work with youth is truly impactful - going deep, not just trying to reach as many kids as possible.
