Molly Goodwin, board member, recently took these pictures at Old Trolley line.
The plant sale was held on a cool cloudy Saturday. Perhaps because of the opening of the Big E as well as a very wet summer the number of people attending the plant sale was not as numerous as previous plant sales during the fall.
Despite the lower number of people attending the sales from plants, t-shirts, and memberships totaled $1,064 and raffle ticket sales totaled $295. The grand total came to $1,359.
Thanks to all who attended and contributed!
Updated signage was installed this week along East Street and the bike path. The sign includes new acquired property The Old Bed- Fish & Wildlife area which abuts the Old Pascommuck property and is still in development for access trails.
On June 10th PCT had a promotional table along with the bear set up for people, young and old, to take a picture with. A number of people, old friends and new, stopped by to learn more about what the Trust is doing these days.
Pascommuck Conservation Trust has a number of beautiful site settings for memorial benches. We want to add to the welcome our conservation areas offer visitors as we look forward to 2023 and celebrating 41 years of conservation.
Your dedicated donation will purchase a sturdy bench ($1700 minimum), chair ($900 minimum), or plaque on an existing bench ($500 minimum). A plaque will honor your loved one, promote a business, or quote a favorite nature poem. Your gift will add to our Stewardship Endowment to maintain and enhance these treasured retreats.
The Endowment generates income to help cover such costs as keeping trails clear of downed trees, annual mowing to maintain bird habitat, rebuilding bridges & steps, and fighting invasive plants — all critical to ensuring our conservation areas remain welcoming, beautiful, and ecologically healthy.
An informational brochure can be downloaded here for further information.
If you would like further information and to talk with someone at PCT please use our contact form.

Pascommuck Conservation Trust has no paid staff, meaning your gifts always go directly towards protecting land, maintaining our conservation areas for public access and habitat protection, and the few unavoidable expenses such as accounting necessary to keep operating.
We have also relied almost entirely on board & volunteer hours for property upkeep. But in recent times, the added burdens of damage from severe weather, aging board members, and increased use of our conservation areas has made it necessary to supplement our own time
with contracted part-time assistance, particularly for any work requiring specialized expertise or involving heavy equipment.
We are asking for your help in building a modest endowment to supplement our regular fundraising and cover not only a portion of those contractor fees, but also materials for replacement or new bog bridges, steps, etc., clearing downed trees off trails, sign maintenance, enhancement of habitat for wildlife and native plants, and other ongoing
