Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust, Inc.
May 13, 2013

Whether it's a beautiful row of street trees, or happy, engaged youth learning about nature and conservation, or a lovingly conserved 18th-century house overlooking the Pawtucket Falls, the evidence of the Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust's work is all around Lowell, enhancing the quality of life in the city. This year's eco-film series, one of many partnerships that help the LP&CT reach out to new audiences, has helped us expand our vision and shown us how connected we all are!

Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust quietly but steadily adds to the quality of life in Lowell. You may drive past a lovely park with beautiful flower gardens and enjoy the touch of country in the city but not know that little oasis exists thanks to LP&CT. You can join a bird watching expedition, a riverway walk, or a whitewater rafting adventure, all courtesy of LP&CT. That stretch of woods or patch of field that remains untouched and serves as a habitat for animals might also be part of LP&CT's legacy to the city. Certainly thousands of Lowell's trees shade us thanks to LP&CT. The Trust is all around us in Lowell, though we might not know it. What we do know is that these special places and activities bring us satisfaction, and that's a very good thing.

I can't think of an organization that offers all the opportunities that LP&CT offers to make a difference in a community. Want to help preserve a colonial-period house or give landscape design suggestions for its backyard stretching to the Merrimack River? Interested in restoring migratory fish populations? Is whitewater rafting your thing? Lock tending at a historic lock chamber? Interested in examining vernal pools? Like planting bulbs in a community garden? Or how about helping with riverside clean-ups and greenway planning? At project's end, you can feel good about having contributed to a healthy environment or a beautiful place. LP&CT is all about improving the quality of life for Lowell and its entire region.

The Great!

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

many ways, especially through the establishment of signage at two ends of the Concord River Greenway, the greenway itself, ed. programming along the CRG . . . My review alludes to the many ways in which I've participated. My city is a more beautiful (and GREEN) place thanks to LP&CT.

Ways to make it better...

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

maybe have more paid staff to expand and sustain the good work
