The Trustees

Annual Report | 2019 Fiscal Year



from the Chair


n 1891, Trustees founder Charles Eliot asked, “What can we do to satisfy the need to be close to nature that burns within us?” For more than 125 years, The Trustees has successfully been working to answer that question for everyone in Massachusetts. In 2019, The Trustees answered in possibly the biggest way yet by achieving large pieces of the strategic plan, Momentum, while continuing to be financially stable to ensure lasting sustainability.

It was an exciting year at The Trustees as significant elements of the strategic plan were accomplished. Gerry Island and deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum were both added as new properties. A CEO Roundtable was created to focus on our One Waterfront initiative and to help protect our coast. We celebrated Doug Aitken’s New Horizon, a series of multifaceted art events, at six of our properties across the state. And, we had record numbers of kids enjoying our summer camps, including new Trustees additions of the hive at deCordova and Farmer, Forester, and Chef! at Powisset Farm. Throughout the pages of this report, you will see our strong financial standing, but also much more about where we have had a lasting impact throughout the state in land conservation, coastal protection, stewardship, and engagement. However, all this can only be achieved with loyal support from our members, donors, volunteers, and our dedicated Governance volunteers. We are thankful for all that we are able to do because of your generous involvement. Thank you all for your support of a mission that is as important today as it was in 1891.

Peter Coffin Chair, Board of Directors


from the President


s you will see in this report, we have made significant progress within each element of our strategic plan, Momentum. Gerry Island in Marblehead was officially included in The Trustees portfolio and we’ve added a combined 624 acres under Trustees protection this year in over a dozen communities. We completed dozens of transformational capital projects as we continue our hallmark commitment to stellar property care. We look forward to working together to continue to protect the places we all love in the year ahead.

Our commitment to being the coastal conservation leader for New England was furthered this year through new national and state funding of $1 million to support our coastal programs, including an innovative salt marsh habitat restoration and the continuation of a redesigned Argilla Road in Ipswich to improve marsh health. We held a series of community sessions in Ipswich and on Martha’s Vineyard as we grow our collaborations with municipalities in support of coastal resilience. We also enjoyed continued traction with our One Waterfront initiative including the establishment of a CEO Roundtable, our second annual gala, and continued negotiations with various landholders on Boston’s waterfront. We expanded our cultural experiences in the last year by completing the organization’s largest integration in history, the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln. This stunning and unique landscape and museum further our commitment to art and the landscape, bringing culture to more communities, and ensuring permanence for this special place. We began our multi-year transformations at The Stevens-Coolidge Place and Long Hill this year as well, enlivening our horticultural offerings and strengthening our plant collections at these beloved gardens. We achieved new heights in getting the next generation outdoors. Over 275,000 people participated in our programs in FY19 and more than two million visited our reservations. Our seven summer day camps brought thousands of kids to our trails, tidepools, vegetable gardens, and barns to learn about nature and explore. We also launched Trustees Trekkers, a hiking program across the state for families to give them professionally guided hikes and positive experiences. We hope you enjoy reading this Annual Report and our achievements in the first year of our strategic plan, Momentum. Your passion, commitment, and generosity drive us as we continue to lead conservation and preservation in Massachusetts. Thank you for supporting our important work that improves quality of life in communities across the Commonwealth.

Fiscal Year 2019 marks the

first year in the Trustees strategic plan, Momentum, and I am pleased to report that momentum is most definitely being achieved! Both the current strategic plan and its predecessor emphasized growth within a fiscally conservative framework—engaging an ever-wider audience to bring more people to the mission and, ultimately, to develop the next generation of conservationists. Our balance sheet is very strong with Total Assets of over $300m and no debt. We continue to grow earned income from diverse revenue streams—such as admissions fees, public programming, events, tours, retail and farm stores, permits, and CSAs—and become more self-supporting. Visitation has grown significantly to over 2 million, as has our membership base which now stands at over 145,000. In FY19 we raised over $24.8m; raising $1 for every 12.5 cents spent on fundraising. Expenses continue to focus on our hallmark property stewardship and increased educational and engagement efforts. Administration and fundraising costs are now less than 20%, enabling us to commit a greater percentage to direct delivery of our mission of conservation, cultural preservation, environmental sustainability, healthy local agriculture, and meaningfully stepped up public engagement. The Trustees is growing robustly, within a framework of low financial risk, creating a solid foundation on which to prosper.

GERRY ISLAND Historic Marblehead Landmark now protected forever


Visible from Marblehead’s historic Fort Sewall and the town’s Gas House Beach, Gerry Island is a beloved and iconic feature of the area’s coastal and cultural landscape, and a popular destination for those seeking unique views of the historic shoreline. A rocky outcropping, accessible at low tide, Gerry (pronounced with a hard “g”) has joined its neighbor Crowninshield Island in becoming a Trustees reservation and the newest culturally and naturally significant North Shore island to be protected by the organization.


alking out on the naturally occurring land bridge in Little Harbor, off of Marblehead’s northeast shore, is really to step back into history. The island was named for Elbridge Gerry—most remembered for the term “gerrymandering”—who was a significant contributor to American history as a signer of the Declaration of Independence, governor of the Commonwealth from 1810-11, and Vice President of the United States under President James Madison from 1813 until his death in 1814. Marblehead residents Ted and Julie Moore had owned Gerry Island for 33 years—allowing the public to use and enjoy it, helping to make it a popular destination among locals—but after years of observing trash pickup and conscious stewardship at Crowninshield next door, the Moores knew their island would be in good hands with The Trustees. “We thought it was appropriate after 400 years of private ownership to donate it to an important land conservation organization so that they can take care of it for the next 400 years,” said Ted.



The waterfront and world class sailing drew Ted to Marblehead more than 40 years ago and then he helped Julie fall in love with the town too. The island was included in the purchase of a nearby boat yard; Ted remembers “very much” wanting the island. The couple obtained permits to build a stone cottage on the island, but they never got around to building it. Instead, they held


birthday parties and clambakes there. Julie kayaks to the island once a week at high tide to check on the property, enjoy its breathtaking views, and read. The couple are happy that young people will have an authentic experience of the natural coastline at Gerry Island. “To be able to walk out to an island surrounded by water in the Greater Boston area is pretty rare,” said Ted, adding, “We’ve spent a lot of years with our kids on the seashore and in boats, looking at turtles and fish and seabirds and aquatic creatures.” The recent acquisition of Gerry Island “really touched the heart of the community on the North Shore,” says Alicia Leuba, The Trustees' Vice President for the Eastern Region. “I am blown away with the connection that people feel to this place.” More than 90 donors contributed to a $250,000 endowment to maintain the land in perpetuity. Stewardship work, including improving trails and removing invasives, was accomplished through the spring, leading to a ribbon cutting ceremony in June 2019. A ranger now welcomes visitors to both Gerry and Crowninshield Islands on weekends during the peak season, signage tells the story of the Island, and new benches have been installed so visitors can take in the stunning views, the salty air, and the sea breezes—which all help connect visitors to the Island’s rich history and marvelous spirit of place.

Sculpture Park and Museum secures a sustainable future as part of Trustees BY MEREDITH CUTLER


ome 20 miles from Boston, the grounds of the 28.4-acre deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln are dotted with visitors. From the museum’s rooftop Rappaport Terrace overlooking deCordova’s bucolic grounds abutting Flint’s Pond, families, seniors, students, and other visitors from all corners of the globe can be seen rambling among the park’s 60-plus modern and contemporary sculptures. Since the museum officially opened to the public in 1950, visitors have flocked to deCordova—some 80,000 a year at last count—to experience art in an unparalleled setting. With a 3,500-piece permanent collection of modern and contemporary art that devotes special attention to New England artists, as well as rotating exhibitions featuring nationally and internationally recognized artists, it’s a perennially relevant and ever-changing destination. And after officially integrating with The Trustees in July 2019, deCordova scribes a new chapter in a story that began over a century ago. DeCordova is set on the former estate of Julian and Elizabeth “Lizzie” de Cordova. Julian achieved prosperity as a tea broker, merchant, investor, and most notably, president of the Union Glass Company in Somerville. The de Cordovas were passionate world travelers, returning from their adventures with exotic objects and art to fill their 22-room home in Lincoln. Heirless after the passing of Lizzie and adult son Dana, Julian decided to give his estate to the residents of the Town of Lincoln in 1930,

with the stipulation that it become a public museum of art and park following his death. The new museum opened to the public in 1950 and the park’s inaugural Outdoor Sculpture exhibition was held in 1966. Over the subsequent half-century, deCordova established a reputation for outstanding modern and contemporary art exhibitions in an unparalleled setting, amplified by stellar educational and interpretive programs for all ages. With all that deCordova offers to the community today, it’s shocking to think how close it came to unraveling. When he became Executive Director of deCordova in 2015, longtime curator of modern and contemporary art John Ravenal quickly realized that there were some financial challenges: a disproportionately small endowment compounded by a shrinking pool of leadership donors supporting deCordova at a disproportionately large level made for an unsustainable model. When he met Trustees President & CEO Barbara Erickson, Ravenal recognized a strong mission alignment between the two organizations, “but not direct duplication the way there is with [another] art museum. We share so many values, but we weren’t already delivering the same experience. We could complement each other.” The boards of the two organizations agreed: through a partnership with The Trustees, deCordova would achieve fiscal stability without losing its intended purpose as a museum and sculpture park. After lengthy negotiations with the Town of Lincoln, which retains ownership of the

land and the building (“They are the ultimate trustees of the original gift of deCordova,” Ravenal emphasizes,) plans for integration were finalized. In addition, the organizations combined staffs to form a new Arts & Culture division, tasked with developing exhibitions, collections management, and interpretive strategies across The Trustees’ entire portfolio of properties in the Commonwealth. Today at deCordova, beyond its singular setting and compelling history, a robust calendar of programming offers new reasons to visit all year round. And internationally renowned land artist Andy Goldsworthy’s Watershed opened in November. This permanent, site-specific work—the only public installation by the artist in New England— reveals previously overlooked forces of nature by channeling groundwater runoff from the upper parking lot through a granite shed set into the pond side hill. Watershed emphasizes how the interaction of art and landscape can change the way each is seen. It’s through that dialogue that deCordova continues its legacy, hand in hand with the Trustees’ vision.

Old Town Hill

Innovation sparks hope for this critical resource


At over 20,000 acres, the Great Marsh is the largest contiguous stretch of saltmarsh in New England. A complex system of barrier beaches, tidal creeks, uplands, and mudflats, the marsh serves as the foundation of a food pyramid where a host of aquatic life gets its start, including the clams and fish that support a vibrant local economy. As important, migratory birds and threatened species, like the piping plover and saltmarsh sparrow, depend on this ecosystem for their habitat. People depend on the marsh, too. The sea of grasses serves as a buffer during storms, minimizing the effects of flooding while keeping coastal homes and businesses safe from the hammering of waves. And when it comes to outdoor fun, the Great Marsh offers something for everyone, from swimmers and sunbathers on the beach, to sailors, kayakers, birders, recreational fishermen, and hunters. But this beauty and security now face an uncertain future. Can critical parts of the marsh, and the plants and roots that bind it together, grow fast enough to keep pace with sea level rise? Already, troubling signs abound: at the Essex end of Crane Beach, erosion has swept away about 1,200 feet of the shore since 2008, effectively widening the opening into Essex Bay by the same amount. 8 THE TRUSTEES

Across the marsh, creek walls topped with grass are collapsing into the mud, and during storms marsh roads increasingly flood. The Trustees protects about 15% of the Great Marsh, which winds through seven reservations, including Crane Beach. Ensuring the resilience of this unique wilderness is paramount, and examining how early farmers and mosquito control agencies used and altered the marshes for their purposes helps to understand its current state. An aerial view reveals a maze of crisscrossed scars—a mix of old embankments built by early marsh hay farmers to alter the flow of fresh water for their crop, and deep ditches dug by Depression-era crews decades later, to drain what was viewed as swampy, nuisance land. Over time these historic ditching processes compromised the natural draining ability of the marsh, leaving it vulnerable to floods. In order to reverse some of this damage, The Trustees and partners will use an innovative, nature-based method of “ditch remediation” to encourage some of the ditches to “heal” themselves—to fill with sediments brought in by the tides, raising the base high enough to catch the sun so new grasses can take root and thrive. To speed the process, the approach requires periodically


layering the base of the ditches with marsh grasses, cut from above, to hold the sediment. On average, ditches can fill in at the rate of nine to twelve centimeters a year. It’s an approach that has garnered considerable support, with more than $400,000 in grant funding, including from the National Coastal Resilience Fund, the North American Wetlands Conservation Act, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, the Department of Fish and Game’s Division of Ecological Restoration’s Priority Projects Program, and a MassBays grant that kick-started the project in Newbury in 2018, with pre-restoration monitoring. Today the team continues working through permitting processes prior to the next phase, with plans to closely monitor the project and share the results with other concerned groups and agencies hungry for solutions to similar coastal problems. “In many cases science is showing marshes are not able to accrete fast enough to keep pace with sea level rise, but that’s because they are already compromised,” says Russell Hopping, Trustees' Lead Ecologist, Coastal Ecology. “I think the evidence will show, where they’ve measured this, an unimpaired salt marsh can keep pace.” For more information on the Trustees' work on the coast, visit our new microsite thetrustees.org/onthecoast Edited from an article that first appeared in the Spring 2019 issue of Special Places.


Why are urban parks important? In 2019, HR&A Advisors was commissioned by The Trustees to examine real-world examples of what social, economic, and resiliency benefits a series of waterfront parks could bring to the City of Boston. The Study finds waterfront parks to be “an essential investment” in the City’s future. Among the survey’s highlighted findings: Quality public space cultivates a competitive city brand that attracts and retains high-profile companies and the talent they employ. Business leaders of growing companies have identified open space and employees’ quality of life as top drivers in site selection. And, the value that young people place on these amenities is consistently greater than their older counterparts, indicating a trend towards increasing importance of investing in open space. A network of signature parks enhances the attractiveness of an area to prospective tenants, and increases the value of existing real estate. Research demonstrates that signature parks create value premiums for their surrounding real estate, and across the country, signature parks have also catalyzed new adjacent development. Parks improve the health and well-being of local residents, and will make Boston a better place to live and work. Open space provides residents of all ages opportunities to engage in more physical activity, and studies have quantified savings on healthcare costs generated by parkassociated health benefits. More on the study’s findings can be found on the One Waterfront website thetrustees.org/onewaterfront


The Trustees continues to advance its Boston Waterfront Initiative—known as One Waterfront, now in its fourth year—gathering support and establishing our leadership voice for a waterfront that is resilient, accessible to the public, and green. With strong community, government, nonprofit, and business backing, led by continued support from the Barr Foundation, progress is being made on priority sites. The organization is well positioned for the next steps in this important initiative.

CEO Roundtable Assembled

G. Scott Uzzell

Over the last year, Trustees has assembled a task force of senior executives from Boston-based companies, across a wide spectrum of industries, in order to help shape the vision for the City’s vulnerable waterfront. Roundtable members will act as strategic conveners between public, social, and private sectors to ensure that One Waterfront rises to the challenge of our vulnerable harbor city—for current and future generations. Members of the Roundtable are:

Two Public Gardens to See Significant Transformations

The Stevens-Coolidge Place


Following on the heels of the restorations of the historic gardens at Castle Hill and Naumkeag in recent years, The Trustees this year embarked upon two exciting new garden upgrades, designed to transform both Long Hill in Beverly and The StevensCoolidge Place in North Andover into

noteworthy horticultural centers and regional garden destinations. More than $9.5 million in funding was secured in 2018 in order to begin this vital work. Mikyoung Kim Design landscape architects and Maryann Thompson Architects have been engaged, and are currently crafting inspired visions for both reservations, which also includes advice and consultation with Members and local community supporters. Visitors to The Stevens-Coolidge Place will be welcomed through a new entry on Chickering Road and will enjoy a series of innovative garden experiences through new pathways to the main house. Plans include a new parking lot and entry road, and Trustees anticipates that visitors will begin to enjoy some of the changes during 2020. At Long

Long Hill


Hill, the master plan fosters horticultural education and engaging visitor experiences across Long Hill’s meadows, orchard, gardens, and woodland trails. Extensive historical research is being conducted on the history of the Sedgwick family and the house, landscape, and gardens. Trustees is grateful to members of the Sedgwick family and to the North Shore Garden Club, who have been volunteering at Long Hill for more than 40 years, for their ongoing support of the organization’s vision for this beloved reservation.

Cultural Landscape Revitalized at The Old Manse The Trustees' vision for The Old Manse— a National Historic Landmark, the onetime home of both Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne, and the site of historic events of the American Revolution— moved ahead significantly in 2019, with the completion of a project to revitalize its


historic landscape. Designed to evoke the vernacular landscape of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when The Old Manse was a center of intellectual life in Concord, the work has enhanced the site’s accessibility while preserving the unique contemplative nature of the landscape for modern visitors. Aspects of the project included renewal of 10 THE TRUSTEES

the site’s trees and other native plants based on a detailed historical plan, identifying and removing invasive plants, restoring the upper drive to historic dimensions, enhancing parking and visitor entrance areas to meet accessibility standards, and developing thoughtfully integrated interpretive signage. "It is significant that this project was developed in consultation with the local community and serves as an excellent example of utilizing the expertise and deep connections that community members can bring,” said Marcie Berkley, Chair of the Old Manse Cultural Landscape Working Group. Funding for this project has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund, a program of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, administered through a collaborative agreement between MassDevelopment and the Mass Cultural Council. Trustees especially wishes to thank the Old Manse Cultural Landscape Working Group for its guidance and support throughout this project. We are grateful for their commitment to this critical work, which we hope will inspire visitors to The Old Manse for years to come.

Kitchen, Cooking Classes Added at The FARM Institute art teaching kitchen and event space was completed and began offering classes this spring. The new kitchen space, designed by island-based Sullivan and Associates, features eight commercial grade mobile work stations and space for up to 32 students—allowing flexibility for a variety of different programs. “Educational programming around farming and local food production is a key part of our overall mission, and a teaching kitchen has been part of our vision since our integration with The FARM Institute in 2016,” says Alicia

During the inaugural summer of its new kitchen, the farm offered educational classes and events, featuring guest chefs and instructors, six nights of the week. The space was also used by the children participating in The FARM Institute’s Summer Camp during the day. Islands Director for The Trustees, Sam Hart, adds, “We are grateful to the many donors and supporters who helped make this kitchen possible. It is a huge asset for the Vineyard community.”

Long Point Wildlife Refuge

In July 2019, a mirrored hot air balloon and gondola conceived by internationally renowned artist Doug Aitken embarked on an unprecedented aerial “road trip” that began on the sandy shores of Long Point Wildlife Refuge in Martha’s Vineyard and concluded at Field Farm in Williamstown, nestled in the scenic Berkshire Hills, two weeks later. Making stops at six Trustees sites along the way, the flying studio became a platform for social happenings featuring live music, food, and inspired dialogue centered on our future as a society.



Titled New Horizon, this fourth installment of the ambitious Art & the Landscape initiative was once again curated for The Trustees by independent Boston-based curator Pedro Alonzo. Elevating the Art & the Landscape concept to a whole new level, New Horizon sought to give all who encountered it a platform for creation and unique opportunities to connect around big ideas. Inspired by the sheer number of possibilities scattered across the map of Trustees special places, Aitken’s initial impulse was “what if we had a mirror in the sky and it could float from place to place?” he recounts. “I wasn’t really thinking about a balloon—that was something I discovered as I looked at different possibilities.” With New Horizon, Aitken "wanted to create a series of moments that you’re a part of—moments that you own and you author.” Reflecting on the landscape and the future, he adds “is the idea of having a very distinctive journey—and an idea of where are we going as individuals, as a culture, the environment, and how can we open up a dialogue that’s shared.” Experiencing Trustees reservations in new and unexpected ways, thousands of delighted participants of all ages attended the various happenings, family days, and special tethered flights, drawn by the music, the conversation, the landscapes and, at the center of it all, Aitken’s balloon—and, ultimately, his extraordinary artistic vision.

Trustees is committed to ensuring the next generation has a strong connection to our environment and rich cultural history. The organization works to accomplish this in a number of ways: through nature-based preschools, hosting hundreds of school groups from across Massachusetts and as far away as California on our properties, providing internships in environmental science, and more. Each year youth get inspired through Trustees educational programs that are experiential, steeped in real world issues, and which augment and enrich traditional classroom curricula—at our working farms, coastal sites, historic houses and museums, as well as our recreational properties. Among the Trustees’ many educational programs are:

A thunderstorm transformed dimples on the ground into muddy puddles, so the children came to Castle Hill in rain boots. The lingering drizzle might have kept their parents indoors, but since the kids were still game for hiking along the marsh and the back dunes, entire families embarked on a journey of simple pleasures along Cedar Point Trail, scouring for worms, splashing in puddles, running through a pine grove wide-open for exploration. One parent whispered to another: I never would have taken my kids outside today by myself, but this is great. Ravenswood Park

“So many families are afraid to get outside, especially when it’s muddy like that, but that’s a kid’s dream,” says Victoria Sindorf, The Trustees’ Education Manager for the Crane Estate, who led the two-hour sojourn as part of a series of Monday school holiday hikes. “Honestly, that rainy-day hike was one of the best ones we’ve ever done.” For parents wishing to share their passion for the world outside or just looking for ways to spend more quality time with the kids, The Trustees offers a range of guided hikes and programs aimed at helping families get acquainted with the easy wonders of hiking. Reservations from Notchview in the Berkshires to Menemsha Hills on the Vineyard host Trustees Trekkers, a series of ranger-led family hikes for all ages and abilities. In just six months of the program’s inaugural season this year, more than 40 guided hikes have been held across the state, and plans are in place for many more to come. Hiking is an ideal vehicle for children’s first forays into the outdoors, with a pace suited to stop-and-start exploration, low physical and financial barriers to entry, and health benefits that transcend low-impact exercise. With the guidance of experts, The Trustees’ family hikes help demystify parents’ most frequent reasons for trepidation in the

outdoors—ticks, mosquitos, poison ivy—and provide a textbook-free, fun-first education in ecology. “One of the things I try to drive home is that you don’t have to be a naturalist to teach your children to love nature and develop their scientific curiosity,” Sindorf says. “When parents jump right into the activity and demonstrate their natural curiosity—even when they have no idea of the name of the beautiful flower or metallic looking beetle— their kids do the same.” Following their lead, a child’s natural curiosity becomes a natural love of the outdoors.

Fruitlands Museum


More than 62,000 Households—nearly 145,000 individuals in all—support The Trustees through membership, and enjoy its many benefits.

Force of Nature (Lovers) Trustees seeks a balanced strategy of audience development complemented by fiscal sustainability, as a cornerstone of the Momentum strategic plan. The work done to increase visitation, build membership, and grow programming over recent years is now seeing fruition in helping the organization become more self-sustaining. This year our visitation numbers, along with program participation, membership revenue, and volunteer hours, grew in substantive and impressive ways. We are excited by these results, which indicate increased interest in and support of the Trustees mission of conservation and preservation, building a foundation that will bolster our work for many years to come.

Trustees offers more than 5,000 programs—classes, workshops, hikes, tours, events, and more—across the state each year.



We are ever grateful to the more than 1,500 individuals, corporate groups, and students who provide many hours of their time each year to benefit our reservations. ©TRUSTEES

oon after moving to Lincoln in the late 1980s, Joel Goldstein and Reed Goodman discovered a cultural gem just miles from their doorstep: deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum. As they built careers in business and industry—Joel in executive consulting, Reed in communications—the couple regularly found respite in deCordova. They bicycled over to glimpse the park’s latest three-dimensional additions. They brought house guests for picnics. They attended every exhibition opening, concert, and special event they could, kindling an ever-growing passion for art collecting in the process. That fondness for deCordova endures these three decades later. “It’s been a haven for us, and we spread the word to people in the area who don’t know about it—anything we can do to help its longevity,” Reed says. “There’s something philosophically and practically valuable to maintaining and supporting local institutions.” After migrating to Sudbury to 1993, Joel and Reed, who’ve been together for 38 years, only strengthened their connections with deCordova. Joel became an overseer and devoted committee member, serving on the deCordova Leadership Council and helping with the museum’s recent integration with The Trustees. “It was a perfect match,”


LEGACY thetrustees.org/svs

Joel says of the integration. “As much as the deCordova is about art, it’s also about the landscape, which fit into what The Trustees care about in terms of preservation.” The bonds with deCordova are central to the couple’s entry into the Semper Virens Society. Upon marrying four years ago and pondering where to channel their financial legacy, Joel and Reed saw a natural fit between their philanthropic priorities— particularly arts and education—and the missions of The Trustees and deCordova. “The arts have always been important to us,” Joel says. “It’s enriched our lives—we feel fortunate to be in a position to purchase art and have it hanging on our walls. And we

want to make sure institutions like deCordova continue to provide art that’s accessible to all kinds of people and all kinds of situations.” DeCordova, Joel adds, also lends vital support to artists themselves. He recalls attending a Party for the Park celebration with Reed, where an emerging artist received an award and recounted her journey and the struggles of a creative life—an occasion that reminded him of just how vital institutions can be in helping creators achieve their true potential. “Nurturing artists, helping them become better known, helping them be able to support themselves through their art—those are added dimensions that make supporting deCordova critically important.”

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. To learn more about how these gifts can help you meet your financial and philanthropic goals, contact Julie Lazarus—at 617.542.7696 x1815 or mylegacy@thetrustees.org. If you have already named us in your estate plans, please let us know so we can honor your generosity through the Semper Virens Society.

Presenting Our Gardens in a Whole New Light For six weekends in 2018—from late November through the New Year—Trustees brought two of our beloved gardens to life in a new, luminous way. Dubbed Winterlights, intricate displays adorned Naumkeag and The Stevens-Coolidge Place with thousands of sparkling, multicolored LED holiday lights. Costumed characters, scavenger


hunts, warming beverages, and wonder-filled gazes awaited visitors, as parents brought children and young adults brought friends to experience what quickly became a new holiday must-see. In all, more than 35,500 visitors came to these two reservations at a time of year when they would otherwise be empty, and 300+ new memberships were

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 (15) Ms. Rosamond W.
