Annual Report | 2021 Fiscal Year

MESSAGE from the Chair



fter a difficult but extraordinary year in 2020, as the Trustees rose to meet the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, we started off 2021 with the heartbreaking news of the passing of our President & CEO, Barbara Erickson. Barbara’s vision, courage, audacious spirit, and her love of our mission changed this storied organization in so many ways, and in every way for the better. We miss her greatly, but we know she would be so proud of what her beloved Trustees has accomplished during these challenging times, and we are confident in the future thanks to her remarkable nine-year leadership of the organization.

As I write this, we have just announced that John D. Judge has been appointed as the fifth President & CEO of The Trustees, and we are eagerly anticipating his tenure. He assumes his new role in February 2022. John has been the President and CEO at the Appalachian Mountain Club for the past ten years, and is known for his passion for outdoor citizenship, community-building, and accessibility for all, as well as his track record of success as a national voice for climate and environmental justice. I look forward to introducing John to all of you in the coming months. We have immense gratitude to the leadership of Jocelyn Forbush, who has served as Acting President & CEO for the last year. Her stewardship of the organization through one of the most turbulent and challenging years in the Trustees 130-year history has been exceptional. Thanks to Jocelyn’s focus and dedication to advancing our mission, the organization continues to be financially stable and is poised for exciting years ahead. This report is a testament to all that the organization has accomplished over the last year, and to our strong financial foundation. As always, we are grateful for you, for your generous and steadfast support of The Trustees and our mission. It is because of you that we can and will continue to accomplish so much as the conservation leader in Massachusetts.

Peter B. Coffin Chair, Board of Directors


MESSAGE from the President


he past year has been a time of tremendous change in the history of The Trustees. On behalf of the staff, I want to express our gratitude to you, our members, supporters, volunteers, colleagues, and friends, for your ongoing commitment to our mission. We would not be able to make it through these tumultuous times without your dedication and devotion to all that we do.

As an organization built over 130 years ago to support and manage change, we are responding to the call of this moment. Over this last year, The Trustees has adapted, pivoted, and flexed the organization into a new way of working in order to adapt and grow. Our very founding was a response to a major societal and economic shift, when Charles Eliot identified the need to protect the special places which, “by great good fortune, still exist near [our] doors.” Today we are confident that we can generate a great good fortune to leave for future generations. As you will see in this Annual Report, The Trustees is continuing the momentum established through Barbara Erickson’s leadership for the past nine years. Even in these most challenging of times, we are protecting more open space, we are creating more opportunities for health, wellness, and access to nature, we are deepening our commitment to fight climate change, and we are affirming our obligation to celebrate the diversity in our own communities and to creating welcoming spaces of belonging for all. Thank you for being there with us as we continue on this great journey.

Jocelyn Forbush Acting President & CEO

Barbara J. Erickson ©MICHAEL BLANCHARD

Trustees President & CEO (2012-2021)


As the first woman to run the nation’s first land conservation and preservation nonprofit, Barbara Erickson made history the moment she became President & CEO of The Trustees in 2012. But looking back at the nine years she spent at the helm of the organization, the true impact of her expansive vision, wisdom, warmth, and determination become both larger and clearer. To name a few of her achievements on behalf of the organization: Annual visitation to Trustees properties has grown by more than 75 percent, exceeding 2 million people; membership increased by more than 40,000 households; the operating budget expanded by $10 million; and revenue doubled. And of foremost significance to Barbara, nine new reservations—iconic places in critical threat of being lost to development—were protected forever. These remarkable feats reflect the remarkable woman who led the way. Barbara was an advocate for the natural world who propelled The Trustees to the forefront of the conservation movement. She was a forward-thinking president who


Audacious Vision, Remarkable Leadership, Indelible Impact

grew and strengthened the organization in lasting ways before her untimely passing in January. Without exaggeration, Barbara Erickson was one of the most important individuals in The Trustees’ 130-year history. “Barbara was an exceptional President, who led the organization into a new era with a strong vision. She will continue to serve as inspiration for all of us for many years, and we look forward to continuing the work that she began,” said Peter Coffin, Chair of the Board of Directors for The Trustees. Growing up in Wyoming, Barbara cultivated a love of the outdoors and a love of traveling, eventually migrating to Massachusetts 20 years ago. After stints at Earthwatch Institute and Save the Children, she became The Trustees’ fourth president and hit the ground running. She worked with the Board of Directors and senior staff to launch The Path Forward—the five-year strategic plan that commenced shortly after her arrival—which outlined a series of bold goals, including the $26.2 million Cultural Resources Campaign to revitalize critical

cultural sites like Naumkeag and Castle Hill. Every goal described in The Path Forward was met, and many exceeded, before the 2018 deadline for completion. Under Barbara’s leadership, The Trustees grew in size and scope. Allen C. Haskell Public Gardens, Governor Oliver Ames Estate, Dunes’ Edge Campground, Gerry Island, the Brickyard, Jewell Hill, and Mary Cummings Park became reservations. Complex integrations brought The FARM Institute, Fruitlands Museum, and deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum under The Trustees’ umbrella. Barbara spearheaded crucial partnerships with the nascent Boston Public Market, placed a new emphasis on arts and cultural programming through the Art & the Landscape initiative, and spurred new forays in local agriculture. She sought to make the organization newly relevant to diverse audiences, to introduce Massachusetts’s most special places to underserved demographics, and to emphasize diversity and inclusion, ensuring that every visitor feels welcome on the premises of Trustees properties.




These priorities informed Barbara’s approach in leading the development of Momentum, Trustees’ current five-year strategic plan implemented in 2018. Momentum is wide-ranging in its aims, from taking a leadership role in gauging and mitigating the impacts of climate change on the Massachusetts coast, identifying and developing critically needed open space along the Boston waterfront, expanding Trustees’ public gardens and garden program offerings, elevating agricultural and cultural experiences, and engaging more families and children in the wonders of the outdoors—all while continuing to advance the organization’s central mission by acting to conserve and protect the Commonwealth’s irreplaceable landscapes. The seeds of Momentum planted under Barbara’s management and leadership are already bearing fruit: Large-scale public garden revitalizations are playing out at Long Hill and Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens; One Waterfront, the organization’s initiative to identify and create green space and outdoor recreation opportunities for


underserved urban communities while buffering against the threat of rising seas along the Boston harborfront, has established its first planned new park site, in East Boston. Trustees’ community-supported agriculture programs and local food offerings are more popular than ever. And one of the most ambitious fundraising efforts in The Trustees’ history is now underway, with more than $100 million anticipated to have been raised by the end of this strategic plan period. Barbara’s ambitions for the organization have been called nothing short of “audacious” by many in their recollections of her life. As the public face of The Trustees, Barbara was an inspirational and resolute leader with a sharp intellect and clear foresight. But “Barbara’s pride in her professional accomplishments paled to what she felt for her family,” said Jocelyn Forbush, now The Trustees’ Acting President & CEO. Her sense of responsibility to future generations—to children like her own Lucia and Marcelo, and countless more for years to come—guided her every action.


For 130 years, The Trustees’ mission has centered on protecting and sharing places of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value in the Commonwealth. Protecting these special places requires special people to show the way. For all that you’ve done and for all that your work continues to do, even in your absence: thank you, Barbara.

Fiscal Year 2021 was a

challenging year but one in which the Trustees emerged as strong, if not stronger, than before. In a year impacted throughout by Covid-19, we were able to grow Total Assets by over 27% to $385m, deliver a surplus (after recognizing a $4m PPP loan) and avoid any staff layoffs or furloughs. Among the many highlights, was the continued growth in Admissions with over 2 million visitors taking advantage of access to the open spaces and nature that the Trustees is able to offer; a 37% increase in a five-year period. Similarly, membership rose to record levels; the number of members almost doubling to 206,000 over the same period; and growing by over 30% in 2021 alone. We also saw impressive growth of 36% in our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs and our flexibility at the onset of Covid-19 allowed us to quickly invest in our Farm Stores, which resulted in a growth of over 52% compared to Fiscal Year 2020. Fundraising was also extremely strong with almost $38m being raised; a great indicator of the support for our mission and strategy. There were, of course, challenges in our Earned Income with Property programs, summer camps, rental and Gala events all being impacted. Even in these areas we moved quickly to adapt: introducing virtual events and camps, developing new programs, and extending Winterlights well into January. The Trustees is a growing organization with a mission that resonates with the public. This was never more evident than in Fiscal 2021 and we now look forward to opening up more of our indoor spaces and resuming a full schedule of programming and events for many more people to enjoy.

MARY CUMMINGS PARK Beloved Burlington and Woburn open space now under Trustees’ care BY JEFF HARDER


ithin one of the most congested regions of the Commonwealth, Mary Cummings Park has endured as a counterpoise of peace, quiet, and open space for nearly a century. And now, with The Trustees having assumed management of its 216 acres straddling Woburn and Burlington, it’s a great time to get acquainted with this approachable, ecologically diverse hidden gem inside Route 128. “It’s a suburban property, but in some ways it has an urban park feel to it,” says Jeremy Dick, Trustees’ stewardship manager for Mary Cummings Park. “It’s a little bit more approachable for people who aren’t necessarily backwoods hikers and are looking for more of a park-like experience.” Before passing away in 1927, Mary P.C. Cummings—a teacher, child advocate, and philanthropist who left her estate to be held in trust by the City of Boston— asked that the former farmland property remain “forever open as a public pleasure ground.” The park soon became a treasured retreat and provided critical habitat for rare species, but as development sprouted up all around, it was perennially at risk of being swallowed up. Fortunately, in the late 2000s, a group of stalwart local residents established a volunteer organization, The Friends of Mary Cummings Park, to staunchly advocate for the Park’s conservation—and in spring 2020 the City of Boston designated The Trustees to manage the property.

Signs of a transformation are apparent from the moment you turn into the park’s newly defined entrance on Blanchard Road. Arriving visitors take in a sweeping view of the new picnic lawn as well as Flyers Field—named for the radio-controlled aircraft enthusiasts who gather there—and the Pollinator Meadow, planted with natives like goldenrod and milkweed and encircled by an ADA-accessible trail. The park features three miles of paths, including the MilliporeSigma Science and Nature Trail, which travels half a mile past stonewalls that recall the property’s farm history. After reaching a five-foot-thick silver maple, the landscape abruptly shifts: a 125-foot boardwalk bends into a marsh buzzing with wildlife. Other trails travel around and through wildflower-punctuated meadows, Northeastern University’s Burlington Campus, and early successional

and established hardwood forests, eventually connecting with the City of Woburn’s adjacent Whispering Hill Woods site. The revitalization of Mary Cummings Park is a cooperative project of the City of Boston, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts PARC Grant Program, and The Trustees, drawing on support from donors and corporate sponsors like MilliporeSigma, Keurig, Breckinridge Capital Advisors, and Cummings Foundation. And while its revitalization continues, the property retains a sense of discovery that’s endured for 94 years and counting. “You travel through different habitats and landscape types—open fields, marshes, woodlands—and there’s a certain sense of adventure,” says Dick. “On every trail you take, you find something new.” Edited from an article in the Winter 2020 issue of Special Places.




Public Policy Update The Trustees advances policy solutions through longstanding relationships with leaders at the local, state, and federal levels. Our advocacy team works with lawmakers to find points of connection between our mission and broader governmental policy goals, ensuring conservation has a seat at the table. Among many other projects this year, we advocated for land conservation and restoration projects as key tools for mitigating climate emissions and managing climate impacts. Following are highlights of recent advocacy work.



STATE OPERATING BUDGET Every year, The Trustees and our friends on the Green Budget Coalition advocate for increased budgets to key state environmental agencies. This year we secured full funding for the departments of Conservation and Recreation, Ecological Restoration, Environmental Protection, and the Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program—all of the increases we advocated for. We also authored and helped pass legislation that closes a loophole in the law to reimburse MassWildlife for hunting and fishing licenses that they give away for free to people ages 70 and above. The agency had already been reimbursed for discounted licenses for those age 65-69, so this new law creates consistency and helps provide much needed funding to the experts who conserve and manage fish and wildlife habitat and protect rare and endangered species.




STATE LEGISLATION LANDMARK CLIMATE CHANGE LAW The Next Generation Roadmap landmark legislation passed into law in Spring 2021, calling for Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The new law requires the state to transition away from fossil fuels and towards the use of Natural Climate Solutions (NCS): strategies that protect, restore, and better manage natural and working lands—such as forests, farms, and wetlands—to remove carbon emissions. In Massachusetts, natural solutions have the potential to remove and reduce an additional one to two million metric tons of CO2 equivalent per year—about same amount of carbon as emitted by 435,000 cars annually. The Trustees helped craft the NCS legislative language and shepherded the NCS policy through the Legislature. We are now an active member of the Commonwealth’s Natural and Working Lands working group that is creating policies to implement the new law. 8 THE TRUSTEES

The Town of Wareham in southeastern Massachusetts proposed to rezone 756 acres of globally rare coastal pine barren habitat to make way for dense commercial development. The Trustees opposed the proposed zoning change as it threatened the collapse of sensitive ecosystems, including The Trustees’ Theodore Lyman Reserve, along with the Plymouth Carver Sole Source Aquifer and Red Brook Wildlife Management Area. Trustees directed an effective communications and outreach campaign in Wareham to educate residents about the importance of protecting these critical resources. Together with our local partners, we reached out to likely Town Meeting voters via earned and social media, phones, and direct mail. Over 2,000 residents turned out for Wareham Town Meeting on April 10, 2021, voting overwhelmingly to protect this critical acreage, with 85% in favor of blocking the zoning change.

TASK FORCES & COMMISSIONS Trustees has also been honored with the following State Commission: Glyphosate Study Commission — Trustees was instrumental in establishing this statutorily mandated commission, which was created to ensure licensed pesticide applicators have access to the least toxic alternatives to removing invasive species in managing habitat and ecosystems. Julie Richburg, Trustees Lead Ecologist, has received a special appointment to this commission.


Design by Community With input from neighbors, plans for Piers Park III come into focus


n August 2020, the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) designated The Trustees as site developer for what will be Piers Park III in East Boston—the first public park established through the Trustees’ Boston Waterfront Initiative. Site designation launched a comprehensive community engagement process around the design for the new park. Meetings with neighborhood associations and community groups, webinars, and a community design survey actively gathered feedback and input throughout 2021. The community design survey achieved over 1,000 responses by the fall, 20% of which were completed in Spanish, before a second survey, launched to collect community wants, needs, and concerns about the site’s future programming and events. Concurrently, the Boston Waterfront Initiative added an Engagement Manager and Community Outreach Coordinator to spearhead family programming, events, and local East Boston outreach. Co-hosted with local organizations including the Veronica Robes Cultural Center,

East Boston YMCA, Piers Park Sailing Center, and Neighborhood of Affordable Housing (NOAH), events in and around Piers Park I in July, August, and September were well-received and attended, including: Sabores de Nuestra Cultura: Family Festival; Oceanside Capoeira: Brazilian Martial Arts; Viernes Caliente: Salsa Classes; and Greenway to Seaside: Educational Bike Tour. In addition, the Initiative maintained an expanded presence at neighborhood events to spread awareness about The Trustees, answer questions about the future park site design, and encourage community design survey participation. Looking ahead, outreach will continue to drive the community design process into 2022. Park construction is contingent upon the next phase of agreements with Massport, including the execution of a development agreement and a ground lease. To date, The Trustees has raised $25 million in pledges for the Piers Park III site, which will fund a significant percentage of the anticipated capital costs for the project.

State of the Coast: The Islands The Trustees’ 2nd Annual State of the Coast report was released in August 2021, a data-driven publication highlighting the climate change-driven projected impacts of sea level rise and storm flooding faced by the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, and the Elizabeth Islands. The report spotlights both current and potential future adaptations, and features impacts to beaches, salt marsh, developed areas such as harbors and business districts, coastal banks, and habitats across the islands’ towns. As outlined in the report, current data and modeling indicates that more than 3,500 structures on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket may be impacted by storm flooding by 2050, with nearly 800 structures lost to erosion. “The impacts of flooding and erosion on these beloved Islands will affect thousands who live and work there, and the thousands


more who visit each summer,” says Tom O’Shea, Trustees Managing Director of Resources and Planning. “To put this into perspective: today’s storm is tomorrow’s high tide. The storm surge from Winter Storm Riley in March 2018 produced a water level on Martha’s Vineyard that is roughly equivalent to the average height of the highest tide projected for 2050.” The 44-page report was underwritten by ReMain Nantucket and supported by Breckinridge Capital Advisors. The inaugural State of the Coast report, released in summer 2020, focused

Rallying for the Refuge Coskata-Coatue-Haulover Wildlife Refuge* juts out into the Atlantic, wrapping back around as the protective barrier beach for Nantucket Harbor. Its 1,452 acres form a large wildlife refuge system including The Trustees’ Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge (916 acres); and two parcels held by the Nantucket Conservation Foundation (NCF): The Haulover (104 acres) and Coatue Wildlife Refuge (390 acres). It is a beautiful but vulnerable landscape, and one of Nantucket’s most exposed beaches to sea level rise, storm flooding, and accelerating erosion from climate change. To confront these challenges, Trustees and the NCF are partnering to use the Refuge and its diverse acreage as a “living laboratory.” Under a three-year phased adaptation project, the team is working to identify resilient intervention methods and adaptation strategies that can maintain access and sustain habitat and barrier beach integrity. The first phase of the grant-funded 10 THE TRUSTEES

project launched in early 2021, to develop a volunteer-led beach profiling monitoring system, design initial beach resiliency concepts to bolster the Refuge’s resilience for the next 10-20 years, establish a partnership to conduct a coastal wave and sediment study, and prepare for potential longer-term projects. This phase also includes production of podcast episodes and a 360-degree panorama video tour to broadly communicate and illustrate both the beauty and challenges unique to this special place. The second project phase, projected to commence in 2022, will see implementation of coastal wave sediment studies and resilience intervention work as well as the establishment of a coastal resilience fund, followed by continued community outreach, education, and engagement in the final phase (scheduled for 2023).

Natural Healing I

Innovative Great Marsh restoration project expands to landscape scale

n early 2020, Trustees began restoration work on portions of the 20,000-acre Great Marsh—the largest contiguous stretch of salt marsh in New England—using an innovative nature-based technique. Originally launching at an 85-acre pilot area at Old Town Hill in Newbury, the project aims to restore the natural hydrology of the marsh by repairing agricultural ditches dating back to colonial times—and expanded during the Great Depression—when vast re-ditching programs were launched to drain the marsh, in areas viewed at the time as swampy, nuisance land. By the late 1930s, nearly 94% of New England salt marshes had been re-ditched, negatively altering the health of this important habitat. “A healthy marsh is a marsh that allows water to come in during high tide, and drain itself of that water during low tide, without retaining standing water,” said Russell Hopping, Trustees Lead Ecologist, Coastal Ecology. “The marsh needs to flood, but if it retains too much water it will drown the plants, killing them, which over time causes the marsh to subside due to root loss.” Today these ditches continue to disrupt natural tidal flow and draining processes, drowning the plants. By layering the base of a pre-determined number of ditches with marsh grasses, cut from above, sediment borne by tides is allowed to accumulate and build marsh peat naturally. This raises the base of the ditches high enough to allow new grasses to take root and thrive, thus healing the delicate balance of flooding and draining. The restored, healthy marsh is then

equipped to continue to build, keeping pace with sea level rise. The pilot program received a boost from a National Coastal Resilience Fund grant in 2019, expanding the project scope to 300 acres. A $1 million award in spring 2021 quadrupled the amount of Great Marsh acreage The Trustees is able to work towards restoring with this technique. This North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) grant expanded the project to a total funded scope of 1,274 acres of marsh in Newbury, Essex, and Ipswich, making this effort the largest coastal or ecological restoration project in the 130-year history of The Trustees. The additional land funded through the NAWCA grant is owned by The Trustees (689 acres), Essex County Greenbelt (141 acres), and the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife (86 acres).


In early December final permits were received for restoration work to begin in Ipswich (132 acres) and Essex (111 acres), while the second year of restoration drew to a close at Old Town Hill, in what is expected to be a 3-to-5-year process. Regular mosquito monitoring at the Old Town Hill site has already indicated improvements, with a year-over-year percentage of “dry” areas (where no standing water occurs to sample larvae) increasing from 8.9% in 2020 to 25% in 2021—a statistically significant decrease in standing water on the marsh, as its natural draining processes begin to heal. The Trustees now has 358 acres fully permitted with 916 acres in the planning phase, following the completion of design and initial monitoring work. At press time, restoration work was anticipated to launch next at the newly permitted sites in late 2021 or early 2022, weather permitting.









With only a few additional paths, small trees, and one orchard to go, the gardens at Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens (note the new name) are happily welcoming members and new visitors. This garden was perhaps the most perplexing to program and plan: Its Colonial Revival roots, daunting entrance, and estate-like grounds challenged a welcoming experience for many audiences. Today we have opened new doors to that effort, welcoming many and building new creativity in ecological garden designs and pollinator programs set adjacent to extravagant seasonal horticultural displays and beautiful legacy gardens. 12 THE TRUSTEES

In spring 2021, the arrival gates opened into the heart of the property, capturing the rural beauty that few had ever experienced before. Here, a new driveway, parking area, and Garden Gateway building now welcome everyone and orient them to available options for how to spend their day. All of the signage is bilingual—a first for the organization— welcoming the large Spanish-speaking communities of Greater Lawrence. You can venture along mown grass paths through the meadow.

While Covid restrictions prevented going into the house this year, QR codes in a window of each room allowed visitors to hear a short interpretation about the interior on their phone while they peered through the glass. Beyond the house, the legacy gardens (Rose Garden, Perennial Garden, French Garden) ignited with seasonal bloom. Together, new and heritage spaces spread across the property and link the main house to its stone-edged fields. For the first time, the full extent of the property’s varied spaces is revealed. The master plan guided not only development of the physical spaces, but provided vision for engagement, programming, and visitor experience. The property opened in April with BloomFest, showcasing displays of 160,000 bulbs. By summer, our annuals, perennials, herbs, and vegetables filled the beds in rich seasonal displays. Classes offered in the Gateway classroom explore the

horticultural arts from cut flower arrangements to plein-air painting while little explorers are guided through meadow and wetland in search of butterflies and insects. The first phase of the Long Hill transformation opened in late June. Today, the main house welcomes visitors to wander the first floor, watch an introductory video, peruse books in the revitalized library, and buy a bit of Long Hill merchandise in the retail space. A new event pergola, set within its own garden room, is already booked for 25 private events. The adjacent carriage house provides accessible restroom facilities, and the renovated catering kitchen supports not only private events, but Long Hill’s sold-out Halloween on the Hill and Tea on the Terrace programs. The legacy Sedgwick Gardens continue their revitalization: the 2,500 plants here have been catalogued, mapped, and labeled, and soon this ‘living collection’ will be available to search online. Long Hill’s biggest surprise is its new garden room, designed by internationally acclaimed

garden designer Julie Moir Messervy, that invites visitors into a sunny circular central lawn surrounded by beds of summer blooming perennials in hues of purple, burgundy, and white. Beyond this garden, meandering accessible paths invite a wander through a cedar-studded meadow and, eventually, to dive through the trail opening into the acres of woodlands hardly ever explored here. This fall work has begun on Long Hill’s lower campus. A new propagation greenhouse, adjacent to the garage-turnedworking classroom, is almost complete. The farmhouse, used by the Sedgwicks as their first home while building the larger house atop the hill, will become the Nancy and George Putnam Horticultural Learning Center, providing two additional classrooms, new amenities, and a welcoming orientation space for those attending Long Hill’s educational programs. Charles Eliot described our organization as a ‘museum of landscapes.’ Fletcher Steele envisioned gardens as a place for ongoing creativity and invention. Mabel Sedgwick felt that gardens offered infinite possibilities for change. These two properties create the platform for uniting the words of these visionaries into action. Through all of our garden properties we protect some of our most iconic scenic, historic, horticulturally rich, and ecologically sensitive places. Today they are more than historic house museums— they welcome our members and guests to actively engage with each place and each other, or to simply rest, relax, and revel in their beauty. Cindy Brockway is The Trustees’ Cultural Resources Program Director.


ANNUAL REPORT 20 2021 13 3




Increased family-friendly opportunities and engagement resources cultivate audience growth Innovative visitor experiences were fundamental to Trustees farms’ success in 2021, while infrastructural investments in agricultural operations laid the foundation for future impact. In addition to continued Covid-conscious events, the properties launched more family-friendly programming and enterprise initiatives that welcomed broader audiences and provided more engaging and inclusive opportunities for all.

Powisset Farm, Dover Powisset Farm expanded its culinary programs for adults and kids this year, and it celebrated Pride Month in June with new OUT at the Farm weekend programs. These programs featured a dynamic line-up of inclusive and educational activities for guests of all identities, and also included the ever-popular woodfired pizza, local musicians, story time, and barnyard experiences.

Appleton Farms, Hamilton & Ipswich A year-round visitor experience has been introduced at Appleton Farms—including weekend tours, hikes, public programs, picnic-style food service, large seasonal events, and an expanded farm store. After purchasing a wood-fired pizza oven, Appleton’s culinary program was expanded to include highly anticipated weekend wood-fired pizza picnics. Additionally, the Appleton Farm Store reopened for in-person shopping in June to great community reception for its updated design/layout and expanded merchandise offerings.

Weir River Farm, Hingham Music filled the air and the hearts of all who attended Sunset Picnics, Weir River’s new outdoor summer concert series. The sold-out weekly events featured Boston-based musical artists, rotating local breweries, and locally sourced cuisine. These programs tied into a broader set of outdoor summer concerts across various Trustees properties and, benefiting from cohesive statewide promotion as well as a clear demand for Covid-safe outdoor programming, quickly became favorite and highly anticipated community events.



On the Farms


Chestnut Hill Farm, Southborough Trustees has rescued a late 19th century, Dutch-inspired timber frame barn located at Deerfoot Farm—a now defunct Southborough farm—from demolition. Working with the Southborough Historical Commission, and honoring the deep agricultural history of Southborough, The Trustees has disassembled the barn and reconstructed its timber framing at Chestnut Hill Farm. The Deerfoot Barn, set to open this fall, will provide a year-round spot for the community to gather and a much needed accessible, indoor venue for new programming and other engagement opportunities. The FARM Institute, Edgartown This year, The Trustees has reevaluated The FARM Institute’s role at Katama Farm, enabling it to grow its impact of delivering farm-based learning opportunities for Islanders and visitors alike. In July, the Athearns, owners of nearby Morning Glory Farm, assumed responsibility for the agricultural operations at Katama Farm. A new lease agreement with Edgartown enables The Trustees to focus on offering programming for families and children, including summer camps, school programs, culinary lessons, and barnyard experiences. The Trustees looks forward to this refined scope as it energizes experiences for families at The FARM Institute.




2021 has been a truly transitional year for arts and cultural programs at The Trustees, not only with the changing course of the pandemic, but also as we continued to expand and diversify our cultural and artistic programs. Visitors flocked to the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum throughout the year to take advantage of a rare treat: art sited outdoors (and lots of it!). Over the course of the year, we increasingly welcomed visitors indoors, too, and many rapturously greeted a series of ground-breaking exhibitions, including the highly original Visionary New England, organized by Senior Curator Sarah Montross; Monumental Cloth: The Flag We Should Know, a piercing re-thinking of the legacy of the Confederacy by 2020 Rappaport Art Prize Winner Sonya Clark; and spectacularly moving exhibitions in both the museum and sculpture park by renowned artist Jeffrey Gibson (Mississippi Choctaw/Cherokee). Hailed by Murray Whyte of the Boston Globe as “dazzling,” Gibson’s exhibition INFINITE INDIGENOUS QUEER LOVE inspired an outpouring of affection from visitors, who repeatedly described original works in the exhibition as otherworldly and who expressed delight in the accompanying family-friendly discovery gallery, where all were welcome to touch samples of the fringe and beads that Gibson uses in his artwork. While much of the public attention at deCordova focused on the dynamic exhibition program, museum staff also began planning for the museum’s 75th Anniversary upcoming in 2025, which has presented us with an opportunity to consider the legacy of this storied institution as well as its bright future—both indoors and out. Special thanks to our community of volunteer guides, who continued to offer tours of the sculpture park to members of the public in order to share their knowledge, despite the continued limitations of social distancing. Meanwhile, artists and visitors alike delighted in a year of thought-provoking exhibitions at Fruitlands Museum in nearby Harvard, where Curator Shana Dumont Garr organized a series of jewel-like projects, including Piecework: Resistance and Healing in Contemporary Textile Art, whose diverse artist roster and introspective themes brought deep emotional resonance to our art program. In Fruitlands’ Native American Gallery, Garr and independent curator (and artist) Gina Adams brought together over a dozen contemporary Indigenous artists who currently live and work in North America, creating an exhibition that evoked the impression of a dynamic conversation between artists and artworks and that echoed across space and time. Jessica May is The Trustees’ Managing Director, Art & Exhibitions, and Artistic Director, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum

Shining a Light on




rustees members and visitors are curious. When they can watch a coastal dune or salt marsh being restored, talk with a mason laying new brick, or witness the transformation of a table being conserved, they leave with an indelible memory to share with others. Most do not realize what it takes to properly conserve a property—to preserve, protect, and manage a natural or cultural resource to prevent deterioration or exploitation, and maintain a safe and aesthetically pleasing environment for staff and visitors. Bringing light to those efforts, sharing behind-the-scenes work of the organization’s mission as it is being carried out by Trustees staff members and expert consultants and partners presents a great opportunity for engagement. This is the core of Conservation in Action, a new initiative to elevate visitors’ experiences by opening the doors to our work and welcoming people of all ages to witness special moments in our ongoing conservation efforts. Through this lens, we showcase strategies and practices that improve the condition, function, aesthetic, and/or longevity of resources or assets on our properties. The goal is to share these moments; to spark a bond between guest and organization that builds a collective desire to invest in our properties. This bond comes through working beside us, witnessing a transformational moment, or recognizing that each membership or financial donation furthers our work.




Conservation in Action projects may appear at any reservation across the Trustees portfolio, from high visitation properties to hidden gems, and from woodlands and beaches to farms, museums, and gardens. Each project is assessed for its potential for engagement, through such criteria as: Is there a life cycle to the project so stories can be shared at different points throughout the process? Does it showcase our technical expertise and best practice strategies for the work we do well? Does it inspire members and visitors to be more involved, through volunteering or philanthropy? Depending on the answers to these and other questions, projects are then assigned a level of support consistent with the visibility of the work—larger and highly transformative efforts may be shared through such tools and techniques as “hard hat tours” with project experts, signage describing our work, online videos, and social media posts to bring the effort to life. Others may receive informative signage outlining

the story behind the work and invitations for visitors to find out more about the projects on the Trustees website. To date, such projects as the restoration of the Rose Garden at Castle Hill, the removal of the beloved 250-year-old ash tree at Stevens-Coolidge which had reached its end of life, and even such a relatively mundane task as cleaning one of Naumkeag’s closets have provided initial models for Conservation in Action at Trustees reservations. Restoration work at Old Town Hill’s salt marsh, the transformation work ongoing at Long Hill, and the reassembly of an historic Southborough barn as a new engagement space at Chestnut Hill Farm are several of the current Conservation in Action projects underway. Trustees looks forward to utilizing this comprehensive engagement strategy to engage visitors and build awareness and interest in all aspects of the organization’s work and mission in the years ahead.

Inviting new audiences to experience nature and Trustees places

In 2020, Trustees launched a new staffing unit designed to expand and diversify its program offerings for families and young adults. Outdoor Experiences (OE) focuses on creating guided hiking programs across Trustees recreational properties, as well as initiating programs that engage non-traditional audiences in the outdoors. At the same time, OE looks for ways to increase the reach of existing Trusteesbranded outdoor programs, such as Hike Trustees. Here are several of the many positive strides OE has made since its inception.

NEW OUTDOOR ADVENTURES Among many initiatives, a team of experienced guides is now providing guided hiking opportunities at Trustees’ recreational properties on the South Coast and in the Charles River Valley and Central MA areas. Hikes are organized at times and with themes that appeal to specific audiences, with such offerings as sunrise, after-work, or sunset hikes, fitness hikes, and birding or winter tracking hikes for families. This program is soon to expand to the Pioneer Valley through a partnership with the outdoor exploration company Adventure East, leading guided hikes, tracking, and forest bathing experiences at Mount Warner, Chapel Brook, Chesterfield Gorge, and Bryant Homestead. Plans are also being developed to offer kayak and mountain bike excursions through Adventure East in the next phase of this partnership.


STATE GRANT FUNDS NATURE PLAY TRAIL In late summer, OE was pleased to announce that Trustees is the recipient of a $50,000 award through the Commonwealth’s MassTrails Grants Program to facilitate design and construction of an accessible nature play trail at Copicut Woods in Fall River. Once open, the new nature play trail will not only be an engaging space for kids and families to enjoy being outside in nature, it will also help The Trustees reach new and underserved audiences in the gateway cities of the state’s South Coast, Fall River and New Bedford. ©CARLA COOPER

PARTNERSHIPS FOR UNDERSERVED YOUTH Trustees is committed to providing more opportunities to experience the outdoors for non-traditional audiences and people who may not be able to easily visit its reservations. Thanks to a grant from REI, exciting partnerships have been launched with several organizations devoted to providing outdoor experiences and programs for underrepresented young people who lack access to nature. Big City Mountaineers, Boys and Girls Clubs in Fitchburg/Leominster and Salem, and City in the Woods are now bringing youth from diverse communities to experience nature and Trustees special places through such outdoor adventures as guided hikes, kayak trips, and overnight camping experiences.



HIKE TRUSTEES TAKES OFF Relaunched in 2021 after a year’s hiatus, Hike Trustees received a renewed organizational focus to nurture program participants’ interests and motivations in getting out to experience Trustees trails. More achievable goals, monthly contests and prizes, and content geared exclusively for Hike Trustees participants has all been very well received and continues to drive interest. A Facebook Group (“Trustees Hikers”) was created as a way for participants to share their experiences and photos, and as a way to share Trustees-generated content. This very active group has grown to over 6,200 members in just eight months, and as word spreads to friends, many people new to the group are finding out about Hike Trustees, and the organization itself, after joining the Facebook Group. The new focus and robust promotion of Hike Trustees has driven participation in the program to remarkable new levels: with more than a month yet to go in the season, nearly 4,000 hikers (more than triple the previous highest season total) have logged 33,000 miles in over 11,300 hikes—increases of 61% and 70% respectively over previous season highs.




In summer 2020, The Trustees announced its recently launched initiative to create more inclusive spaces for visitors, members, volunteers, and staff across the organization and its 120+ reservations. We had just begun developing a framework for building more welcoming places where all people feel invited and feel a sense of belonging, and now, as we advance through the first year of the effort, I am pleased to report more fully on our commitment to Diversity, Belonging, Inclusion, and Equity, and share some highlights of our early progress.

Core to the Trustees mission is the simple truth that nature and culture can soothe the soul and improve our lives… not for some, but for everyone. The Trustees has long been concerned with improving access to its properties and mission for all, and through a number of important initiatives in the last 20 years has been committed to better serving diverse communities throughout the Commonwealth. But the work to create more inclusive spaces that began in the last year expands the focus toward ensuring that everyone is not only able to access our properties, but that all feel welcomed and feel that they belong.

THE JOURNEY BEGINS The Trustees is committed to looking at diversity from a variety of different perspectives—gender, race, ethnicity, mobility and ability to access, LGBTQ, and more— and to better represent and welcome all communities to our properties through our programming, our exhibitions and interpretations, our signage, publications and communications vehicles, and by providing greater accessibility on our reservations and in our facilities. Here is a snapshot of what we have accomplished so far over the past year: On our reservations, we have begun to install multilingual signage to better represent and serve local communities, such as those at Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens in North Andover, which is next door to the large Spanish-speaking communities of Greater Lawrence.




Celebrating Pride Month this past June.

At Monument Mountain in Great Barrington, The Trustees worked with the Stockbridge-Munsee band of Mohicans to change names of parts of the property that were considered offensive. New interpretive signage has been developed in collaboration with the Tribe to rightfully acknowledge that the site was occupied by the Tribe prior to their forceful removal by European settlers, and to recognize its significance as a sacred site for the Tribe. Exhibitions at our museums and cultural sites are highlighting work by more diverse artists and performers. We are creating programs that celebrate Juneteenth, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, and Pride Month, among others, and are establishing partnerships with communitybased organizations to bring youth from diverse communities to experience nature and our special places. And we are working with more minority- and women-owned businesses as vendors and suppliers for our gift shops and events.

In the Piers Park III project in East Boston, we are working closely with the local community on designs for the park, with working sessions held both in English and in Spanish, and we are surveying the community in multiple languages so that we can engage in a much broader conversation with those who don’t connect to us in English. We are also deepening our commitment to providing more access to our properties for mobility-impaired people, by creating new accessible and wheelchair-friendly trails at more reservations, offering adaptive equipment, and adding more accessible restrooms and picnic tables at a number of properties. Staff members are participating in workshops, training sessions, and peer discussion groups—and have committed themselves to ongoing learning and understanding how they as individuals can grow and contribute to creating a more welcoming environment for all. Numerous Trustees colleagues have dedicated themselves to championing this work and I am grateful for their efforts and enthusiasm. We are excited by the initial steps we have taken so far on this journey, but we acknowledge that this is a long-term commitment for the organization. We are eager to delve more deeply into the work, learning, and growth ahead of us, and we are encouraged by the passion and commitment of the entire Trustees community in what will be a far-reaching and transformational effort. Our resolve has never been stronger— to all people, of all backgrounds, persuasions, and abilities: You Belong Here! Edited from an article in the Fall 2021 issue of Special Places. Janelle Woods-McNish is The Trustees’ Managing Director of Community Impact.


PUMPKINS, PEONIES, AND PIZZA Innovations and expansions of popular programs attract eager audiences


After a year of innovating to offer Covid-safe programming, Trustees has expanded successful pilots while resuming well-loved events with the loosening of state and local restrictions. As a result, public programs have now returned to pre-Covid levels, with 160k participants engaged through the end of October, as many have sought the benefits of the outdoors in a time of global uncertainty. New and returning signature events celebrated the seasons and attracted large audiences throughout the year. With reduced capacity and adjusted visitor flow to ensure a safer experience, Winterlights sold out at both properties—Naumkeag and the Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate—even as the events were extended deep into January to satisfy demand. The Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens in North Andover officially reopened after a multi-year property revitalization with 20 THE TRUSTEES

Bloomfest, a new event series inviting visitors to enjoy the expanded gardens in full spring regalia. Tickets for both Bloomfest and the 3rd annual Naumkeag Daffodil & Tulip Festival series sold out in a handful of days. The always popular series of summer picnic concerts at Castle Hill and Fruitlands Museum were expanded to more reservations, with new Blues at Bradley concerts at the




Bradley Estate in Canton, and with the bookings of nationally recognized musicians at Fruitlands. deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum added a new intimate musical experience, while Stevens-Coolidge offered their own Summer Picnic Concerts, and Weir River Farm hosted a new series of Sunset Picnics featuring local musicians from June through October, which sold out each week. The volume of tickets sold and the open spaces for all concerts ensured guests could enjoy live music in a safe manner. In the fall, Halloween on the Hill at Long Hill in Beverly welcomed visitors to this recently revitalized garden property, to rave reviews. As with other major events, tickets to this and the returning Incredible Naumkeag Pumpkin Show sold out, with 21k guests across the two series. In addition to key events, new smaller scale programming also proved successful. Many properties expanded the visitor experience through pizza picnics and biergartens. In the colder months, firepit programs sold out across several properties in what would otherwise have been a quieter time for engagement. Farm properties hosted harvest celebrations in the fall drawing in families for hayrides, games, activities, and local food. All eight of the Trustees summer camps—including the brand new camp at Rocky Woods in Medfield—were fully registered by early spring, welcoming 2,700 campers and bringing in more than $1 million in revenue. Afterschool programs were expanded as well. As The Trustees looks toward the future, lessons delivered by the Covid pandemic will shape visitor engagement for the better. It is clear many visitors crave experiences that connect them to nature and culture and have a newfound appreciation for spending time in the outdoors that will last well beyond this moment.

riven by the need for more ways for people to spend time outdoors, as well as rekindled confidence from Covid vaccinations and the gain in Trustees Membership in the previous year, Trustees’ Recreational Enterprises experienced a banner year. The three campgrounds— Dunes’ Edge in Provincetown, Tully Lake in Royalston, and the expanded campsites at Rocky Woods in Medfield—were more popular than ever, hosting more than 40,000 campers. Capitalizing on the increasing popularity of alternatives to tent camping, Dunes’ Edge added five rustic bungalows, complete with bunk beds and essential furnishings, perfect for families and those who want something more than a tent but without the investment in an RV. At Rocky Woods, after a successful pilot program in Fall 2020, overnight camping was officially launched in spring with 15 campsites and updated facilities in great demand. Notchview, in Windsor, has had a year like no other, as well. Day ski passes last winter nearly quadrupled the previous year, and even with Covid safety concerns requiring the closure of the Visitor’s Center, revenue doubled that of any previous season. And, in late summer, a pilot program to assess the impact of mountain and gravel biking on the trail system was created, which proved popular and is planned to continue next year.



A Banner Year for Notchview and Trustees Campgrounds



Membership Report BY DANIEL VINCENT


2020 was a year of tragedy and transition, but thanks to the loyalty and generosity of Trustees Members—and a timely and compelling value proposition—it was also a year of success and hope, evidenced by record Membership growth that not only maintained but accelerated our momentum. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit in March of 2020 and we closed our properties and offices, we knew we had to be resilient and nimble in order to secure this vital revenue stream for the organization.

Staying Strong Inspired by Barbara Erickson’s determination to “weather the storm,” we decided to continue our acquisition and renewal campaigns as per usual. Because we were not in the office to process mail, we shifted operations towards our online channels and urged Members to join and renew on our website rather than through the mail. When we reopened our properties, we did so with advance purchase, timed ticketing. Overwhelming demand for access and limited capacity conspired to create tremendous customer service challenges. Delays in processing and fulfillment due to office closures and increased volume exacerbated service issues. The backlog of phone calls and emails was all but insurmountable. We hired temporary customer service associates to help us get through the backlog and respond to Members personally, through thousands of phone calls and emails, taking responsibility for inconveniences and frustrations and thanking Members for their patience, understanding, and support. During the pandemic, when people were desperate to get outside and do things, The Trustees offered something unique and safe, and Membership provided special access. Despite our initial concerns, Membership joins and renewals continued to increase dramatically. We ended FY21 with almost $8.3 million in total revenue and 83,000 Member households, an increase of 44% and 33% respectively, surpassing 22 THE TRUSTEES


our original revenue goal by more than $2 million. Our Annual Appeal also doubled, from $400,000 to more than $800,000—a sign that this growth was not just transactional in nature, but also philanthropic.

Going Forward In order to retain and build upon this growth during FY22 and beyond, we maintained our omnichannel approach, with all mail and digital channels at full tilt including a robust multi-part renewal cycle, expanded acquisition campaigns, and refinements to our online ticketing, registration, and e-commerce systems. We ensured that there is constant engagement with Members throughout the year in all our marketing channels, highlighting things to do, but also the mission work which so many connect with. We expanded Member pre-sales and previews and other Member specials for signature events like Bloomfest, the summer concerts series, pumpkin shows, and of course the return of Winterlights. We implemented a new outside caging service to receive mail renewal notices and acquisition applications to help us scale up (and speed up) processing and fulfillment, which increases Member satisfaction and

retention. We created a full-time, 7-daysa-week customer service response team to answer emails and phones more efficiently and quickly, helping Members with renewals, permit purchases, and registration for programs; and addressing general customer service issues in a timely manner. Thanks to these efforts and the continued loyalty of our Members, we have seen sustained growth now into the third quarter of FY22. By the end of the second quarter, we have reached an all-time high of 100,000 Member households and have remarkably maintained 20% growth from the same point in our record-breaking FY21. And because our Members typically remain with us for many years, we are confident this growth will resound well into the future. We have an unprecedented opportunity to build a thriving and growing Trustees of the future by stewarding this strong community of advocates and the vital support they provide, and by creating and sustaining a culture that recognizes and celebrates our Members, regardless of the challenges. Daniel Vincent is The Trustees’ Managing Director of Membership.

By the Numbers



2,080,565 FY20




The story of 2020 and the entirety of the 2021 Fiscal Year (FY21) was, of course, the Covid-19 pandemic. While most of the Trustees in-person programming was curtailed, many new online programs were created and were well received. Volunteering was also negatively affected by the reduction of in-person opportunities. The pandemic had an opposite effect for visitation and membership, however, as both areas saw growth. Here is a look at FY21—by the numbers:




The open spaces Trustees protects and maintains saw record numbers of visitors during FY21—a result of the inherent need to escape Covid lockdowns and to get exercise in the great outdoors. Actual numbers at reservations grew by a greater extent than these numbers indicate at first blush, as FY20 visitation numbers included the final year of the Trustees’ relationship with Boston Public Market.

$8,296,547 FY20

$5,750,958 Note: Includes Membership fees and gifts below Founders Circle levels.


Membership experienced remarkable growth in FY21—showing both how much our mission is valued and how well positioned Trustees was to respond to the pandemic crisis. Overall, our Member households grew by 30% from FY20’s numbers, and Membership dues increased an astounding 40% over the same time period.



Program Participation


Trustees offers over 5,000 workshops, classes, tours, hikes, events, and more each year. This number was severely impacted by Covid-19 in FY21 but has rebounded to pre-pandemic levels in the first several quarters of FY22.




Trustees provides hundreds of different opportunities for individuals, corporate groups, and students to volunteer their time in support of our mission. Prior to the arrival of Covid-19 at the start of FY21, Trustees anticipated growth in volunteer hours of approximately 6%, however those numbers were subsequently and significantly reduced by the pandemic.




65,495 FY20




Retail Experiences Expand, Online and In-Person The Trustees retail program has gained momentum, building on the learnings and advancements gained during the pandemic in 2020. Among these is a new online shopping experience——which uses the e-commerce platform Shopify to integrate all Trustees retail locations, including the farm stores, onto one comprehensive Trustees shopping site. Shopify offers a more seamless user experience and integrates well with other systems, yielding insights that will propel further growth. Many Trustees retail locations that temporarily closed for in-person shopping in 2020 have now reopened, including the deCordova Store, The Old Manse, Castle Hill Gift Shop, and all farm stores. In spring 2021, The Trustees opened new gift shops at its two revitalized public gardens—Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens in North Andover and Long Hill in Beverly.

The thoughtfully curated product assortments along with intentionally designed retail spaces has ensured the success of these stores, exceeding their annual goals within the first 3-6 months of opening. The Thanksgiving holiday has created the opportunity to showcase the culinary strengths of Trustees farms with a new initiative to sell pre-made holiday side dishes, prepared by Trustees chefs across four properties, alongside turkeys sustainably raised at neighboring farms. The promotion yielded strong sales in its first year and has served as valuable learning to gauge the capacities of kitchen teams during a busy time of year. Looking ahead to the 2021 holiday season and 2022, Trustees retail will continue to build on its successes by offering in-person and online customers new opportunities to shop local while supporting our mission.


Trustees Digital Platforms Drive Rapid Growth Spurred by investment in its digital infrastructure, Trustees is now entering the second year of transformational change in its ability to promote visitation, Membership, programs, and enterprise opportunities to a wider audience than ever before. Implementation began with the launch of the organization’s new

website in late summer, 2020, and has continued over the past year with the remarkable evolution of its email marketing program. The updated website features improved visuals, more curated content, and improved search functionality, all on a platform that is more user friendly and enables more efficient maintenance—with

one-year metrics indicating a marked improvement over the previous site: the total number of users has grown by 47% to more than 2.5 million annually, and average time-on-site has improved by 26%. The second phase in the Trustees’ digital strategy, and the focus for new growth in the past year, is email marketing. Utilizing increasingly integrated platforms and communications customized to the recipients’ interests and behaviors, along with more robust segmentation and automation functionality, Trustees digital marketers have witnessed remarkable returns: e-Newsletter subscribership has skyrocketed from 80K to over 250K subscribers in the last year alone, with open and click-through rates rising substantially and achieving results that outpace nonprofit benchmarks. Growth in the organization’s ability to market through these digital channels drives concomitant growth in Trustees Membership, visitation, program participation, enterprise, and engagement across the board—with positive, measurable results that will be seen for years to come. The Digital Strategy is supported by The Manton Foundation.





For Generations to Come While Peter Creighton was a child wandering the woods around his family’s Manchester home, he quickly learned that he had certain responsibilities to the landscape. His family “adopted” a prominent trail on the North Shore; charged with keeping the footpath in good repair, Peter happily joined in clearing brush. “That stewardship instilled in us that it’s not just about walking on trails and enjoying them, but being an active part of maintaining properties, and being part of a movement to protect the land,” Peter says.

Today, Peter and his wife, Catherine— who both joined the Semper Virens Society in 2019—are driven by a conviction that the future of land conservation relies on sharing nature with new generations. Peter experienced this firsthand, exploring Trustees properties with his late father Albert Creighton, a New England land conservation luminary and a Charles Eliot Award recipient who spent half a century with The Trustees. Soon, Peter cut his own path toward the organization: years after working a summer job at Long Hill in the 1980s, he served on The Trustees’ advisory board from 1996 to 1998, and on the board of directors from 1996 to 2006. Along with instituting term limits to encourage participation from younger members, Peter was involved in the Trustees’ merger with the Boston Natural Areas Network, among other initiatives.



Meanwhile, after leading a conservationfocused residential development company, Peter found a new career in delivering outdoor education to urban communities. He’s served as a teacher-educator with Thompson Island Outward Bound, Mass Audubon, and Boston Public Schools; since earning a master’s degree in education from Harvard University, Peter has begun developing an environmental literacy curriculum for fifth and sixth graders. “As a teacher-educator, I’m hoping that if I can open the eyes of urban youth, they’ll become comfortable with the out-of-doors environment,” he says. “Then they can pass their experiences along to their children, in the same way that saving a piece of land today benefits future generations.” After becoming acquainted with The Trustees through her husband, Catherine joined Peter in co-chairing The Trustees’ 125th Anniversary celebration at Appleton

Farms as well as the inaugural Snow Ball at Castle Hill in 2020. As a parent to two young children, she treasures seeing familiar landscapes, like Ravenswood and Coolidge Reservation, through their eyes. “We first visited Long Hill with them three years ago, and I wish I could have bottled their response,” Catherine says. “Running through gardens navigating woody thickets, peering through iron gates—their complete delight made it even more magical.” Considering the intergenerational role that The Trustees has played, a planned gift was a natural decision for the Creightons. “The Trustees is such an important part of our lives,” Peter says. “Managing my father’s bequests and the real impact that they have had has made me realize the benefits of planned giving to The Trustees, even in my 50s. For us, it’s a gift that lives on for the next generation, similar to my teaching.”

Planned gifts have allowed The Trustees to advance its mission for more than 100 years. You can be part of that legacy and help ensure our work continues far into the future.

The Semper Virens Society Semper Virens, which means “always green,” honors and recognizes generous individuals who have made a legacy gift to The Trustees. Since the first recorded bequest in 1902, support via wills and life income gifts has built and strengthened The Trustees’ mission. This strong financial base has provided important stability, enabling The Trustees to secure important landscapes and landmarks, acquire new reservations, implement innovative stewardship, share our conservation mission, and promote ongoing protection of threatened land across the state. We are delighted to list the members of the Semper Virens Society. In making a planned gift, these individuals have turned their passion into a legacy, and set an inspiring example for others to follow. Anonymous (19)
