Virtual Mythology “G-Odyssey” Scavenger Hunt

The Attleboro Land Trust is again hosting an event for families as part of the annual Big Read program of the Attleboro Public Library.  This year, the entire community is reading the book Circe by Madeline Miller.  The event will be a Scavenger Hunt to find hidden gods and goddesses from the book using the free Goose Chase EDU smartphone app.  The event will be held from October 9 through October 18, from dawn to dusk, at a location to be determined.

The location of this event was originally going to be the Deborah and Roger Richardson Nature Preserve.  However, we may have to change the location to another one of our preserves because of a conflict with construction at the main entrance to the Richardson Preserve.  Check this website for final word on where the Scavenger Hunt event will be held.

Attleboro Land Trust selected as Stop & Shop community bag program beneficiary

Purchase a reusable Community Bag from the Stop & Shop located at 251 Washington Street, Attleboro, and a portion of that purchase will support the land trust.

The Attleboro Land Trust has been selected as a beneficiary of the Stop & Shop Community Bag Program for the month of September. The Land Trust will receive a $1 donation every time the $2.50 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during September.

The Stop & Shop Community Bag Program, which launched in May 2019, is a reusable bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.  The Attleboro Land Trust was selected as the September beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Stop & Shop located at 251 Washington Street, Attleboro MA.

Another Milestone Accomplished at Richardson Preserve

Many hands combined to help the Attleboro Land Trust complete a new split rail fence on the Richardson Preserve just in time for the Opening Celebration on June 9.

With the support of Sensata Technologies of Attleboro, four Sensata employees managed to complete the installation of more than 400 feet of split rail fencing along the western boundary of the property on May 31.  This is yet another outstanding accomplishment in an ongoing partnership with Sensata.

Local businesses National Fence of Attleboro and Norton Equipment Rental were generous in their support of the project.  The Attleboro Conservation Commission provided funds to purchase the materials.

Richardson Boardwalks Completed

Thank you, Sensata Team, for volunteering your skills and energies over two days of hard work to build three new boardwalks at the Richardson Preserve on October 12 and 19. Your efforts will enable us to open new trails that will be enjoyed by the public for years to come.
