Clearly, this is not normal. This is not business as usual – and we cannot pretend that it is.

We regularly hold our Annual Membership Drive in early spring, but this year we held off. Instead, for 2020 we will make your membership to the Land Trust free. We ask only that you make a donation to a local non-profit helping those who need it most.

The world – our world, our country, our state – is in the grip of a pandemic, economic turmoil, and social unrest. Our healthcare system has been overwhelmed, our economy is struggling, the unemployment rate soaring, and our social and racial inequities are more prevalent than ever.

The Land Trust makes a difference in many ways, working to create a future where everyone has access to natural lands. But right now, we want to make a more immediate impact to help those in need.

If you can, please donate to a medical, economic, or social service organization that will make a difference in people’s lives today. Just let us know that you made a donation and sign up with your email address for a free one-year membership to the Middlesex Land Trust.

We are, of course, always happy to accept donations. But for now, if you can, please help another whose need is greater. You can be sure that the Middlesex Land Trust will come back another time to ask for your donations – perhaps when business is back to normal.
