Review for Lowell Parks And Conservation Trust, Inc., Lowell, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust is an amazing organization because it succeeds in turning bold creative ideas into real accomplishments that benefit everyone who lives in or visits the City of Lowell. Here are just a few of its accomplishments that I've been privileged to enjoy personally over the years: It's development of the Concord River Greenway, which I can walk to in minutes; its commitment to regular cleanups along the Concord River and other green spaces in the city; its beautification work at parks in all city neighborhoods including Rogers Fort Hill Park where I volunteer; its "2000 Trees for 2000" campaign that planted well over 2000 trees throughout the city by the year 2000... and the Trust continues to plant trees; its outdoor environmental education programs for school children, adults, and families (I've enjoyed its White Water Rafting, Winter Tracking, Bird Watching, and Maple Sugaring events); its protection and preservation of land for much needed pocket parks in Lowell including Jollene Dubner Park near my neighborhood. The Trust has built extensive community partnerships and friendships over the years with all of Lowell's neighborhoods groups, numerous civic and non-profit organizations, schools, and City Government. It's this passion and commitment to community and wanting to make Lowell the best place to live that makes the Lowell Parks and Conservation Trust my favorite non-profit in this city!

Role:  Volunteer & Helped the trust at a cleanup along the Concord River; Helped plant trees donated by the Trust at Rogers Fort Hill park; helped at the Trust's annual Maple Sugaring workshop at Rogers Fort Hill Park; participated in its annual city-wide beautification day.
