Trust Meetings

Monthly Meetings: All members and other interested individuals are invited to attend the Westford Conservation Trust monthly meetings. Meetings are generally held on the third Thursday of each month and begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Roudenbush Community Center. The annual meeting in November is an exception and there are no meetings in July and August.

Annual Meeting: The annual meeting takes place at 7:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of November. At this meeting, Trust officers summarize our business for the year and we hold elections to fill positions whose terms are expiring. A special guest speaker makes a presentation when the business portion of the meeting is over. Refreshments are also served.

Westford Conservation Trust Scholarships
Each year the Trust presents scholarships to Westford Academy students who show an interest in the cause of conservation. If you are interested in applying, please speak with a WA guidance counselor to obtain the correct forms. Education and conservation are foremost in the minds of the Trust directors and we hope to encourage the youth of Westford to follow this same passion.

Biodiversity Days
Once a year, the Massachusetts Office of Environmental Affairs sponsors Biodiversity Days. This program began in 2000 and the State enlisted the help of volunteers in cities and towns across the state. The data that was gathered focused on visible forms of life. Today, the program has grown to include microscopic life forms. The program now has regional organizers who help coordinate and lead nature walks. These organizers come from groups such as the Mass. Audubon Society, nature clubs, and watershed councils. One of the objectives of this event is to collect flora and fauna reports around the state. For our part, we would like to encourage our members to participate by venturing out into town (even just your own back yards) and note plants, birds, and animals that you see from May 31 through June 3. Then report to us what you saw (species), where you saw it (address), and when you saw it (date).
