T

he true resilience of an organization’s mission and work becomes most visible during a crisis. In the past year, we have had several crises and opportunities to show our grit. While the organization was tested, it was also triumphant. The Trustees mission endures, as it has for 129 years. We all stand together as stewards of that mission and the work that we do collectively. We learned even more deeply how important we are to the audiences which we serve.

It gives me great pleasure to present this report of activity during a year when good news has been scarce or overshadowed. We welcomed record numbers of members and guests to our trails, farms, beaches, and museums, and we met the increased demand for locally grown fresh food. We maintained the fiscal health of the organization while staying true to our obligations. Our work to protect special places continued without interruption. The protection of Jewell Hill is a testament to the power of place and conservation. And we look forward to sharing progress in all of this work soon. This report will show that, even in these uncertain times, we have a strong financial foundation, made stronger by smart strategic thinking and so many longtime supporters like you. We are grateful for you, for your generous involvement, and for your unwavering support as we navigate new challenges and turn them into opportunities. It is because of you that we can and will accomplish so much as the conservation leader in Massachusetts.

Peter Coffin Chair, Board of Directors

MESSAGE from the President

A

s we take the time to reflect on this past year, we want to first express our gratitude to you, our members, supporters, volunteers, colleagues, and friends, for your commitment to The Trustees and our mission. It has been a year like no other, but also where we found that our mission of providing everyone access to our reservations was more valued than ever before.

We faced difficult challenges this year with the pandemic and made some hard decisions, including closing our properties for a short time. But, The Trustees did what it has spent the last 129 years doing—transforming to new thinking and generating new ways of working when crisis hits. We rose to the occasion and will continue to as we ensure that we endure for another 129 years. We stayed focused on our mission to preserve properties of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value for everyone. Our momentum to protect these special places was not deterred as we opened two new reservations, added acres to Bartholomew’s Cobble, and received official designation from the Massachusetts Port Authority as the site developer for a new waterfront park in East Boston. Through the uncertainty, we worked diligently to stay connected and be a valuable resource for our members and neighbors. We created virtual programming for all ages, expanded and improved our agricultural operations, and re-imagined camps and programs to provide safe opportunities for all. We saw record numbers of visitors across the state as people sought joy through art, culture, and nature. The Trustees is resilient because of you. Our work is more important than ever before, and we believe our momentum will not be interrupted by the challenges we face today. We will continue showcasing the resiliency that we have demonstrated for more than a century, together.

Barbara Erickson President & CEO

ANNUAL REPORT 2020 1


COURTEY OFJON SACHS

Fiscal Year 2020 was a year of

substantial progress in the second year of The Trustees Strategic Plan, Momentum. The plan calls for strong growth balanced by fiscal conservatism. Through effective management and enthusiastic support by members and donors, The Trustees has grown revenues by 50% over the past five years with total assets now exceeding $300 million. This approach has positioned us well to withstand the impacts of Covid-19, thus far avoiding both large layoffs and significant losses. Among the year's accomplishments was the full integration of the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, the largest-ever acquisition by The Trustees. Visitation overall continued to grow and for the first time exceeded 2 million, an increase of 75% over the last five years. Membership also enjoyed another strong year rising to over 155,000. All categories of earned income increased including admissions, tours, Community Supported Agriculture programs, public programming, and summer camps. Another highlight was the growth of Winterlights, a holiday program at three of our public gardens, to almost 60,000 visitors. Fundraising was also robust with almost $22 million efficiently raised. Fundraising and administrative costs are now less than 20% meaning that over 80% goes to direct delivery of our mission of saving and sharing natural and cultural places that improve the quality of life in Massachusetts. The Trustees is a healthy, growing organization with a mission that increasingly appeals to the public. This was brought home during the pandemic when people were reminded how wonderful it is to be able to enjoy the outdoors.

THE BRICKYARD

THE MENEMSHA HILLS MANUSCRIPT COLLECTION; THE TRUSTEES, ARCHIVES & RESEARCH CENTER

BY JEFF HARDER

Revealing the Vineyard’s industrial past

O

n the craggy northwestern coast of Martha’s Vineyard, a roughly 45-foot chimney rises above the shoreline like an oversized maroon candle on a rubbly birthday cake. For mariners, that chimney in the sleepy town of Chilmark has long been a marker for plotting courses across Vineyard Sound. For decades, it was the most visible aspect of 18 overgrown, seldom-visited acres. Back in the 19th century, however, the chimney was a crucial feature of the Brickyard, one of the earliest commercial brick-making operations and a bona fide industry on the island. Workers

drew upon the site’s native soil, timbers, and water power to manufacture the bricks that helped build, among other things, downtown Boston. Now, with a new trail cut to neighboring Menemsha Hills, Trustees has unveiled the remains of the Brickyard to the public, affording an experience unlike any other on the island. Says Chris Kennedy, The Trustees’ Stewardship Manager for Martha’s Vineyard, “You never expect to find a place like this on the Vineyard.” Some 12,000 years ago, a glacier measuring many hundreds of feet high shaped the modest hills and valleys of the Vineyard’s northwestern shore, endowing the landscape with rocks, soil, and ancient clay. By the late 1860s, when Boston banker Nathaniel Harris purchased the land, the brickworks had entered its heyday. For nearly six months a year, workers mined red and white clay by hand, fired the kilns with timber from the property’s trees, and powered pre-electric infrastructure with the ripples of Roaring Brook. “It was all the sheer power of water,” says Kennedy. “[Roaring Brook] compressed the bricks, moved the raw material around, and drove this massive water wheel that turned a conveyor belt to move bricks in and out of the drying sheds.” Annual production climbed to 800,000 bricks. Schooners docked at a pair of long-gone piers on the shoreline, shipping the finished product to construction projects in New York, Newport, and Boston.

©TRUSTEES

But by the end of the 19th century, with the advent of electricity and the ubiquity of railroads (as well as fuel shortages for the already treacherous shipping process), brick-making on the mainland became more efficient—and brick-making on Martha’s Vineyard became obsolete. The acres overlapping the Brickyard remained with the Harris family, who established a short-lived clay works after brick-making petered out. In the 1960s, Nathaniel and Katherine Harris donated their family lands, which included Menemsha Hills. And in 2014, The Trustees formally received the Brickyard as a gift from the estate of Flora Epstein, née Harris, who passed away in 2010. The story of the Brickyard is frequently one of mystery. “This is the question we always ask ourselves: why a brickyard here?” Kennedy says. “Of all the places in New England, why was this one so important? But when you look around, the answer becomes instantly obvious.” Edited from an article in the Spring 2019 issue of Special Places.

Protecting a north-central gem

Spanning Ashburnham, Ashby, and Fitchburg, Jewell Hill has long been known locally as Crocker Farm, after the family who has, through four generations, owned and operated a dairy farm on the property for more than 100 years. The property is part of the broader Fitchburg city water supply, and the farm abuts more than 2,500 acres of watershed conservation land. The 296-acre property is also a recreational gem: bisected by a placid country road with a view of Mount Wachusett in the distance, the wooded farm roads and trails present opportunities for hikers and cross-country skiers alike.

ewell Hill is a prime example of how preserving New England’s agricultural landscapes can provide for outdoor recreation as well as serve as an ecological bulwark. “Jewell Hill’s agricultural heritage is how this open space has persisted for generations,” says Vanessa Farny, Land Conservation Specialist for The Trustees. Jewell Hill Farm originated in 1917, when Kendall Crocker acquired the original acreage for a hobby farm. During World War II, Ken Crocker II established an award-winning dairy farm with 60 head of cattle. Since the farm’s closure in 1987, fourth-generation descendants Gus and Alfred Crocker have maintained its landscape of working hayfields and hardwood forests. Roughly 12 years ago, The Trustees and the Crockers began discussing the property’s future. In 2009, The Trustees helped the City of Fitchburg Water Division secure a 112-acre conservation restriction over a portion of the original farm owned by Alfred. In 2017, a pivotal bequest by

the late Jamie Hudson, a long-time Trustees member and Governance volunteer, enabled The Trustees to re-engage in conversation with the family and explore permanent protection of the remaining portion of the farm. The Trustees partnered with the municipalities, all of whom were supportive of the farm’s permanent conservation. Purchases of conservation restrictions ensured the property’s permanent protection for watershed values and public enjoyment and brought additional critical funding to the transaction. Julie Richburg, The Trustees’ Lead Ecologist for Inland Natural Resources notes, “The reservation is part of an ecologically significant landscape of forest and other habitats, holding resilient habitats crucial to many species negotiating the changing climate.” The Trustees’ priorities include managing the property to improve habitat resilience while continuing to foster hay production on the premises. Visitors to this north-central gem will not want to miss the breathtaking vista at the 1,411-foot peak of the hill—now named to honor Jamie Hudson—which looks out over a landscape blanketed in forest. On clear days, even the Boston skyline takes shape some 45 miles out on the horizon. Edited from an article in the Fall 2020 issue of Special Places.


PROTECT THE PLACES PEOPLE LOVE

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. Recently, 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.

FEDERAL LEGISLATION GREAT AMERICAN OUTDOORS ACT (GAOA) Signed into law on August 4, 2020, the GAOA guarantees $900 million in Land and Water Conservation Funds (LWCF) every year and provides $9.5 billion in deferred maintenance on federally owned lands and historic/cultural assets. Over several years, The Trustees and its partners in the LWCF Coalition urged Congress to permanently reauthorize LWCF before its 50-year expiration in 2015—a battle won in 2018. Now, with the passing of the GAOA, LWCF will no longer be subject to annual congressional approvals and will automatically receive full funding. Further, Massachusetts is now expected to receive a major increase in “stateside” investments, which can be used by state agencies, cities, and towns to protect lands and waters, create urban parks, and build outdoor recreational facilities.

STATE LEGISLATION NATURAL CLIMATE SOLUTIONS (NCS) The “2050 RoadMap” bill passed both the Massachusetts House of Representatives and the State Senate this year, although as of this writing, these bills have not yet passed into law. Both bills set forth more stringent, multisector targets and requirements for reducing greenhouse gas emissions statewide, with goals of reaching “Net Zero” emissions by 2050. NCS are actions to protect, restore, and better manage land-based natural resources to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Natural resources are the only tool currently available to remove existing carbon from the air and are vital to reach the state’s Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions goals. The NCS language, drafted by Trustees staff and our friends at The Nature Conservancy, directs the Environmental Secretary to measure the carbon stored by and released from land-based natural resources; set numeric goals for increasing the carbon stored by the land; and create a plan to reach those goals via state policies and funding. The NCS policy will become part of the state’s powerful Global Warming Solutions Act.

SMART SOLAR REGULATIONS The Trustees and its nonprofit conservation partners worked together to persuade the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources to improve and increase state incentives that promote solar development under the state’s Emergency Regulations for the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) program, while protecting pristine natural resources. At the same time, we opposed using state incentives for large scale solar arrays on undisturbed lands: More than 3,000 acres of forest are developed for solar farms every year in Massachusetts, which permanently removes the forest’s ability to sequester and store carbon.

TASK FORCES & COMMISSIONS Trustees has also been honored with appointments to the following State Public Task Forces and Commissions: DCR Special Commission — charged with developing recommendations to help the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) improve management, operations, and condition of the natural, cultural, and recreational resources held by the DCR. Representing The Trustees: Fran Blanchard, Managing Director of Stewardship Mosquito Control Task Force — following passage of legislation in 2020, the Baker Administration established this task force to support data-driven mosquito-borne disease management program that protects public health while minimizing risks to ecosystems, drinking water supplies, and agricultural lands.

Education and Research on the Rise at Coastal Reservations The Trustees’ coastal properties are among the most beloved and most dynamic reservations—changing with the winds, seasons, and tides. Using these sites as living laboratories offers special opportunities for volunteers, students, and visitors—many who hold deep emotional attachments to these special places—to broaden their experience, contributing to stewardship and care, and learning about the challenges we all face from the impacts of climate change. Educational efforts are working to expand awareness of climate and coastal change through many channels, including new onsite interpretation elements being launched

reservations in the Great Marsh, Crane Beach, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket all have academic research partnerships in the works, with such institutions as the University of New Hampshire and Boston University. And on Martha’s Vineyard, the Claire Saltonstall Education Program has completed its 29th year, providing opportunities for island schools to engage with Trustees properties while conducting field studies that align with school curriculum frameworks. Citizen science programs have also been developed in the last two years, with programs established for beach and shoreline profiling, and ecological monitoring. In FY20, more than 200 dedicated volunteers signed up for these programs—several of which provide opportunities for ongoing and long-term involvement—and contributed over 13,500 hours of their time on Trustees' behalf.

A new collection of panoramic tours, videos, and podcasts were produced by The Trustees in summer 2020, documenting opportunities for, and benefits of, nature-based solutions at three Trustees coastal properties: Crane Beach, Wasque, and Norton Point Beach, each of which experience unique challenges and will need distinct resilience strategies to prepare for the future. Funded by a grant from the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM), “A Focus on Our Most Vulnerable Places” was a first-of-its-kind coastal communications project awarded by CZM to a nonprofit. Together with a crew that included video producers and a climate change podcast host, the team documented firsthand accounts of coastal change from local stakeholders—including residents, business owners, Trustees members, visitors, and friends, many of whom hold special memories of these places. “CZM was pleased to award The Trustees a Coastal Resilience Grant to communicate how Crane Beach, Norton Point, and Wasque are changing over time with higher tides and storms,” said CZM Director Lisa Berry Engler. Using the three properties as case studies enabled examination of a variety of coastal landscapes—barrier beaches (Norton Point 8 THE TRUSTEES

Numbers Beach), coastal banks (Wasque), and publicly accessible shorelines (Crane Beach). “The imagery is stunning,” said Trustees Director of Coast and Natural Resources Tom O’Shea. “The products importantly tell the story about what these coastal places face in the coming years, and what the options may be to protect them for future generations.” Trustees is exploring opportunities for similar products at other coastal reservations in coming years.

ince 2016, in response to the recent construction boom along Boston’s waterfront, Trustees has worked to identify sites for a series of potential waterfront parks that would offer equitable access to dynamic open space while helping to protect the city from sea level rise and storm surge. The Trustees’ Boston Waterfront Initiative (BWI), known as One Waterfront, has recently taken a major step forward in realizing its vision. Over the last two years the Trustees team has worked closely with the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) through an RFP, MOU, and site assessment process around an abandoned and dilapidated pier adjacent to Piers Parks I & II, on the southwest side of East Boston. A summer 2020 vote from Massport’s Board granted official site designation for this parcel—known as Piers Park III—to The Trustees. The work now advances to an exciting new phase: designing an iconic, welcoming, and resilient waterfront park. Landscape architecture firm Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. (MVVA), renowned for its welcoming urban park designs—including Martin’s Park in South

Boston and Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York City—will lead the iterative design process in partnership with The Trustees, the East Boston PiersPAC (Project Advisory Committee), and the local community to ensure designs are aligned with needs and neighborhood concerns. Ultimately, park construction is contingent upon the next phase of agreements with Massport, including the execution of a development agreement and a ground lease. The community design process will take place throughout 2021, with construction to follow. To date, Trustees has raised $20 million in pledges for the site, which will fund a significant percentage of the anticipated capital costs for the project. “Boston recognized the value of parks early on, and over the last several months we’ve seen the Covid-19 pandemic underscore the importance of open, outdoor space,” says Nick Black, managing director of the BWI. “One Waterfront will build on the strides made by our City since its early days, helping to imagine and create a more welcoming, accessible and resilient waterfront, one that can be enjoyed by generations to come.”

T

he Trustees protects more than 120 miles of the Massachusetts coast, and is proud to be the largest private owner of protected coastline in the state. In 2017, a Coastal Vulnerability Assessment helped determine how best to protect and adapt coastal reservations to the effects of climate change, taking an informed, data-driven approach. “With 35 coastal properties, we have a real opportunity to feature these places as ‘living laboratories’ and coastal resilience models that engage thousands of stakeholders and share valuable lessons about how we steward through coastal change,” said Trustees Director of Coast and Natural Resources Tom O’Shea. “To be a more effective coastal conservation leader in the face of sea-level rise, more extreme storms, and threats to the oceans we depend on, we have to broaden our reach and highlight what is happening and the urgent need for calls to action.”

As a result, Trustees is publishing four annual “State of the Coast” reports as a major component of the 2023 Strategic Plan, Momentum. The first of these reports, focusing on the North Shore, was released in summer 2020; it examines the coastal resources, challenges, and adaptation methods for 13 North Shore communities in the state’s Coastal Zone. A second report to be published in summer 2021 will focus on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, before moving on to other coastal regions of the Commonwealth in subsequent years. In developing these reports, The Trustees is working with coastal managers, scientists, journalists, and designers to examine real stories and raw numbers, and to produce a compelling look at the health of the Commonwealth’s coastal regions that only an organization with such a unique perspective as ours can provide. The State of the Coast report incorporates town profiles, feature articles, maps, and

graphics throughout to tell the story of the North Shore coast, culminating with a coastal index scorecard to rank vulnerabilities and resources in five areas: beach, salt marsh, armored shoreline, developed coast, and habitat. “The data and visuals in this report are valuable for a wide range of stakeholders to see the potential impacts of sea level rise and storm surge, including increased daily tidal flooding, from the latest MA Coastal Flood Risk Model funded by MassDOT and developed for the state,” said Brittany L. Hoffnagle, Woods Hole Group Environmental Scientist. “Whether you’re a business owner, resident, town official, or steward, this is an important visual for anyone who lives near, works on, or cares for the coast.” To view the State of the Coast report, visit thetrustees.org/coast.

Gardens, Revitalized T

he public gardens protected and cared for by The Trustees are a living documentary of Massachusetts horticulture and design traditions. Many of the gardens were developed during the so-called “Country Place Era” (1890 to 1930), when wealthy Americans showcased their travels and taste by drawing inspiration from European garden design. Following on the heels of the restorations of the historic gardens at Castle Hill and Naumkeag in recent years, Trustees embarked upon the rejuvenations of two additional garden sites—Long Hill and The

Stevens-Coolidge Place—in 2018. That year, more than $9.5 million in funding was secured in order to begin the vital work of turning these beloved reservations into true garden and horticultural destinations. Now, at The Stevens-Coolidge Place in North Andover, the first of the two multi-year rejuvenation projects is nearly complete. The revitalized property will open in April 2021 as Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens, with a grand floral display and celebration of spring. Highlights of the multi-million-dollar revitalization effort include new garden rooms

NEW VISIONS UNDERWAY FOR TWO BELOVED PUBLIC GARDENS to complement the core historic gardens and house while also providing new experiences for visitors—the result of a master plan created with Mikyoung Kim Design landscape architects and Maryann Thompson Architects. Trustees collaborated with members and local community supporters, as well, to advise and inform the design process. The project also includes reorienting the site with a new entrance and parking area on Chickering Road, removing the need for pedestrians to cross Andover Street in order to enter the property.

ABOVE (left to right): Initial work begun this spring removed invasive species and trimmed back overgrown areas to reveal the original expansive views from Long Hill’s hilltop settings; Conservation work is now underway to restore and stabilize the hand-painted wallpaper within the elegant Federaliststyle brick house.

The previously restored gardens— including the rose garden, greenhouse, potager, perennial garden, and cutting garden—provide the estate’s primary link to the past. The overall architectural structure and American Country Place style are preserved, while new and expanded display garden spaces—featuring plantings of the latest ornamental species, varieties, and cultivars in contemporary designs—have been created. Native shrub and wildflower displays, and nature trails through the woodlands, fields, and meadows will also grace the historic Ashdale Farm property. In celebration of the rejuvenation, the nine gardens will come alive with the blooming of more than 165,000 bulbs in an exuberant display of spring color. Visitors to the first annual Spring Spectacular will also enjoy a series of programs and events staged amidst the garden’s beauty. New interpretive elements, both within the gardens and the house, are being developed, and will be complemented by multi-lingual signage and wayfinding materials. And an array of gardening and horticulture

workshops, classes, and other garden-based programming for kids, adults, and families alike will engage visitors in this historic site every season of the year. Long Hill in Beverly was owned and cared for by the Sedgwick family from 1916 to 1979—their beloved summer home that, in the 1950s, became their year-round haven. Mabel Cabot Sedgwick, an accomplished gardener and author of The Garden Month by Month, and her husband, Ellery Sedgwick, noted author and editor of The Atlantic Monthly, summered here until Mabel passed in 1937. After Mabel’s death, Ellery married Marjorie Russell Sedgwick, a rare plants specialist. The combined creative vision of these two women led to the design of Long Hill’s enchanting gardens, surrounded by more than 100 acres of woodland. The multi-year plan now beginning at Long Hill will rejuvenate the gardens and improve amenities in order to create a new and revitalized experience for visitors. The master plan enhances horticultural education and engaging visitor experiences across Long Hill’s gardens, historic houses, meadows, and

woodland trails. Current and ongoing work includes the expansion of the gardens through the addition of an exciting new garden room and the creation of a newly planted pergola and brick terrace, to be used for private events and educational programming. The elegant English-style country house will also be refurbished and opened to visitors. Improvements include new interpretation throughout the property and reinvigorating the Sedgwick Gardens. A rich menu of public events is being developed to explore and interpret the beauty of gardens, horticulture, and nature, and special educational activities for all ages and experience levels will help create our next generation of garden enthusiasts. The rejuvenations of Long Hill and Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens represent a profound investment by The Trustees into the future of its cultural sites and the communities they belong to. The expanded and updated gardens will celebrate history and horticulture, and delight visitors in new and dramatic ways. Through the revitalizations of the gardens, energized program offerings, and greatly improved visitor amenities, both of these beloved gardens will provide a welcome respite and a refreshing and enchanting experience for visitors for years to come.

articipation in Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) increased during the 2020 season, as Trustees adjusted farming operations to enable safe food delivery to shareholders. Pre-boxed shares, curbside or outdoor distribution, and increased sanitization practices were just a few of the new protocols instituted at the start of the season. Vegetable CSAs sold out by the end of April, and participation in the Meat CSA grew by 102% over 2019. The Winter CSA is also fully sold through, marking an increase of 35% in participation from the prior year. In response to the need for safely distributed food, Trustees brought its farm stores and stands online and pivoted to a pre-order model with curbside delivery. As a result, retail farm store revenue grew by 107% in 2020, likely aided by robust press coverage of this new offering during a time when there was increased interest in locally grown food from a trusted source. The Trustees also introduced socially distanced experiences at the farm properties, including pizza picnics at Appleton, fall harvest weekends at Powisset and Chestnut Hill, and new homeschool and afterschool programming for families adjusting to altered educational schedules in light of the pandemic. In all, farming revenues marked a bright spot in an otherwise challenging year, with an overall increase in revenue of 27%.


ELEVATE OUR CULTURAL & AGRICULTURAL EXPERIENCES

Creative Connections Expanding and engaging through art and culture

A

rt and culture have been part of The Trustees’ work since the beginning. In more recent years, a focus on the power of art to elevate visitor experience has been enhanced by the recent addition of two museums and the ongoing success of our Art & the Landscape initiative. Since the launch of Art & the Landscape and the acquisition of Fruitlands Museum, both in 2016, Trustees has sought to connect visitors to deeper experiences through art. Presenting compelling contemporary art in the context of a public landscape, Art & the Landscape aims to surprise, delight, and intrigue visitors with unique new works by world-renowned artists that respond to the story of some of our most treasured properties. Fruitlands Museum has a long history of presenting changing art exhibitions, as well as permanent collections of historic Shaker material, Hudson River School and New England landscape paintings, folk portraiture, and Native American art and artifacts. Its audiences come specifically to engage with art or enjoy a social outing, a walk in the beautiful landscape, or take in the unique intersection of art and nature. Now, with the integration of deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in the summer of 2019, a wide variety of new art and culture initiatives, exhibitions, programming, and educational offerings have been introduced to Trustees audiences. The organization has established a new Arts & Exhibition division, which in the last year has responded to increased visibility within the art community, bolstering the program at Fruitlands Museum, and set in motion plans for expanded exhibitions, displays, events, performances, and other curated programs at a number of reservations. Through a heightened and coordinated program of art and cultural offerings in a truly contemporary approach, we will enhance and elevate the visitor experience at Trustees properties, attracting new audiences and engaging more traditional audiences in new ways. We aim to go beyond convention by sharing diverse perspectives, amplifying marginalized voices, and finding creative, unexpected ways of conveying fascinating stories of all cultures who have called our landscapes home.

@XANDERLASER

Since its integration in July 2019, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum has seen a significant increase in visitation, with audiences enjoying new installations such as Andy Goldsworthy’s Watershed and the 2020 exhibition Visionary New England, unique events and programs, as well as engaging art-making and education offerings for children and adults alike. Fruitlands is currently presenting new works such as Sue McNally’s Ascutney Revisited, which responds to the museum’s renowned Hudson River School collection, and the remarkable Decolonized Map of Massachusetts by Artist-in-Residence Elizabeth James-Perry, an enrolled member of the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head-Aquinnah.

Summer camps satisfy essential needs for Trustees families

T

The benefits of summer camp experiences for children’s social, emotional, and academic growth have been well documented. The Trustees diverse nature-based camps offer immersive experiences for every interest—from art to farming, to science on the coast, cooking, and nature. Each camp is designed around the unique characteristics Appleton of its natural environment, the reservation’s essential activities, and the distinct needs of parents and campers.

Farm

The 2020 Summer Camp season, while experiencing lower overall participation and revenue due to Covid restrictions, taught The Trustees a great deal about its audience and about its programming. The organization immediately put these lessons learned into use and is quickly seeing the benefits from their teachings. Adapting to restrictions and following the strictest guidelines for safety, Trustees was able to open four of its seven summer camps with on-site, in-person programs. One other—the hive at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum—opened as an online-only experience, with campers exploring art and visual culture in a virtual setting. Capacities were reduced at on-site, in-person camps, and programs started later than usual, but the enthusiasm and desire for Trustees programs for kids was never more evident. Each on-site camp quickly reached its full capacity, and space was carefully parsed so that as many families as possible could participate.

And a major lasting impact of the 2020 summer camp season can be seen in the new teaching techniques crafted by educators as they adapted to safety protocols—many are already being offered to Trustees families as new afterschool and homeschool experiences.

INVITE THE NEXT GENERATION OUTSIDE

ROCKY WOODS WELCOMES OVERNIGHT CAMPERS This fall, The Trustees piloted a new campground at Rocky Woods, in Medfield, in service to its strategic plan goal to invite the next generation outside. The Rocky Woods campground is an ideal first camping experience or quick getaway, just 30 minutes from Boston and surrounded by miles of hiking trails and tranquil ponds. Boats are available to rent at nearby Chickering Pond, and firewood and other camping basics are for sale at the staffed visitor center. A grant from partner REI Co-op facilitated the addition of campsites, facilities, and trails to the existing modest camping area that has been used by Scouts and other organized groups in the past. The new 15-site campground pilot opened on Labor Day Weekend and remained open during fall weekends and holidays for 14 nights. The pilot enjoyed an overall occupancy rate of 78% and exceeded revenue targets by 26%. This strong interest in camping was also observed at the existing Tully Lake Campground in Royalston, which had a banner year: maintaining a 90% occupancy rate and extending its season deeper into the fall as people opted out of hotels and planes, and seized upon the opportunity to spend more time out in nature. With the strong fall pilot, The Trustees plans to officially open the overnight camping program at Rocky Woods in 2021—overnighters will welcome the new sites and cleaned-up trails, the updated shower and rest room amenities, and new programming being offered to enhance the camper experience.

Program Innovations Prove Popular 2020 brought unforeseen challenges to Trustees programming in the face of the pandemic, as well as opportunities to innovate quickly and flex to a new reality. After a brief programming hiatus in the spring, during which much new virtual content was created in lieu of onsite programs, Trustees teams established new forms of in-person programming that would capture the imagination of individuals and families seeking recreational opportunities while maintaining safe virus-avoidance practices. Timed ticket entry to proven family favorites, such as fall harvest weekends on the farms, the Great Naumkeag Pumpkin Show, and Winterlights, among others, helped Trustees staff manage the number of participants and ensure the safety of staff

and visitors alike. In parallel, new sociallydistanced experiences were offered, including Castle Hill Illuminated light shows, Fresh Air Flicks drive-in movie series at Holmes Field

in Plymouth, date nights at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, small outdoor concerts at Fruitlands Museum, and sunset picnics and fire pit programming across several properties. While program participation has significantly declined since the start of the Covid-19 crisis—as compared to the same time period in 2019—these programming innovations have tapped into demand that will influence program development in a post-pandemic landscape. In a year that has challenged us all, we reflect on the Trustees moments that were so filled with joy, connection, and wonder for adults, children, and families across the state—and look ahead with confidence that our audience will continue to seek out similar experiences even after better times return.

We’re OPEN! Flexibility, Innovation, and Resilience Drive Success in 2020

I

t has become almost tiresome to say that we are living in unprecedented times. It has also become clear that such times require unprecedented thinking and action—qualities that exemplify The Trustees’ bold, decisive vision in times of crisis. While a 129-year-old organization like The Trustees may seem to run on tradition rather than transformation, it is actually in our DNA to drive radical new thinking and to generate new ways of working when crisis hits.

“You’ve made our family feel comfortable during these difficult times and [we] enjoy outdoor experiences. We’re members for life!” Our very founding was a response to the public health crisis of the late 19th century and the industrialization of the city, leading Charles Eliot to deem open and natural spaces as a salve for both the body and the mind. When we saw the world change almost overnight in March of this year, we knew what The Trustees has to offer would be in high demand. So we changed the way we work in order to fulfill our mission; we pivoted almost every business model that we have. In mid-March, we took the unprecedented but necessary step of temporarily closing all of our reservations. Just a few weeks later, following government advisories and protocols, we were able to reopen the vast majority of our properties, but we did so carefully and with new health and safety precautions in place. To control overcrowding, we launched a new online ticketing system at 13 of our most popular locations, including Naumkeag, deCordova, Fruitlands, World’s End, and Crane Beach. At many reservations, we immediately saw record numbers of visitors as people flocked to our special places.

“Looking forward to experiencing something you could DO, out of doors, safely. A very exciting, creative idea on the part of the Trustees!” Even with Trustees offices closed, the organization’s technology infrastructure facilitated a quick shift to an online environment. We canceled all in-person programming through June. We brought our CSAs and farm stores online in order to give people the safe option of pre-ordering with contactless pick-up. Our engagement team became even more creative and provided new, virtual programming and ways to visit and connect with our properties without leaving the safety of home. By early summer, we had reopened all our reservations, created safe summer camp experiences for hundreds of kids desperate to get outside, booked hundreds of overnight stays at our campgrounds, and put plans in place to invite visitors back into our historic houses and museum exhibitions when the state guidelines allowed visits to indoor spaces a few months later. Throughout this unprecedented year, we have seen a resurgence in appreciation for what has made our organization essential, and relevant, throughout the decades: Getting outdoors and enjoying public, open space. While it has been a challenge, we realize we are also experiencing an unprecedented opportunity to introduce The Trustees to more people. Visitation has been at record highs as we’ve seen our trails, beaches, mountains, and meadows filled with visitors seeking to get outside safely. We have also seen, gratefully, a 30% rise in membership. Through it all, we are offering visitors, members, and newcomers something they vitally need: Connection—Connection to nature, to one another, and to the purpose of saving places. Edited from remarks presented by Peter Coffin, Chair of the Board of Directors, and Jocelyn Forbush, Executive Vice President, at the 129th Annual Meeting, November 5, 2020.

BUILD THE TRUSTEES OF THE FUTURE Visitation More than two million people visit Trustees reservations each year, and surveys continue to show great satisfaction in their experience.

Membership Numerous benefits, coupled with a mission that more and more people find compelling, leads to significant gains in member households and revenue.

©TRUSTEES

Striding Forward Increases in visitation to Trustees reservations over recent years—to a level that has risen to more than 2,000,000 annually for several years running—means more people are consequently likely to participate in programs, volunteer their time and skills, and become members. Bolstered also by the addition of deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in 2019, Trustees has been able to greatly expand the number of public programs offered, and audiences have come in droves. Trustees membership continues to resonate with many visitors and residents, resulting in significant growth. Volunteering opportunities are growing and this year volunteer contributions reached an incredible 83,447 hours.

Program Participation Public programming has grown substantially with the expansion of Winterlights and other successful programs along with the integration of deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.

BUILD THE TRUSTEES OF THE FUTURE

Digital Transformation Launched as Groundwork for Future Growth In late summer, Trustees launched a newly redesigned website—at thetrustees.org—conceived to allow visitors to more interactively engage with the organization, find places to visit and things to do more easily, and encounter a more robust visual experience showcasing the organization’s 120 special places. “We needed a website that conveys the breathtakingly unique aesthetics our properties display in real life and now we have it,” said Matt Montgomery, Chief of Marketing and Audience Development. “There’s an emphasis on putting amazing photography front and center, as well as adding functionality that helps visitors find the most tailored experiences they’re seeking.” Spearheaded by nationally renowned Blue State Digital, the revamped website also includes an interactive homepage map that filters properties by interest area, more curated content, a blog featuring the organization’s internal experts highlighting Trustees initiatives, added emphasis on Art & Culture

offerings, expanded histories, and enhanced property and event search functionalities. The new website is the first visible step in a digital transformation process for The Trustees. This multi-year, organization-wide project includes increasing capacity and improving processes around data collection and management through all touchpoints with members, donors, visitors, program participants, retail customers, and other audience members. By providing more connected, personalized, and easy-to-use experiences built upon data-driven strategies, the digital transformation will enable the organization to take advantage of the latest technologies in order to support the goals of each pillar of the Momentum strategic plan, while providing the digital infrastructure required for future growth.

Reaching New Audiences, Advancing New Opportunities

recruit and retain more visitors and program participants, encouraging them to become members and donors; find more ways to attract new audiences and create enterprise activities that will contribute to greater financial sustainability; and increase community involvement in the organization, embrace more volunteers, and provide more and more rewarding and dynamic opportunities for our constituents to connect with The Trustees and our work. Several new focal areas have been established within the organization’s staffing structure this year in order to propel these strategies. Community Impact is building a framework intended to create inclusive spaces of belonging across the organization and its 120 special places, cultivate a more welcoming environment, and embrace culturally inclusive programming, stories, and interpretations. Volunteer Services is also receiving a greater emphasis, with new opportunities intended to better engage available skill-sets in support of a broader swath of the organization’s impact areas. Outdoor Experiences is exploring new enterprise opportunities such as nature and adventure play areas for kids and families. Retail Strategy connects the organization’s gift shops across the state to online shopping access and will leverage the combined force of our audience toward new products and retail opportunities. And an expanded emphasis on Digital Technology seeks to increase the organization’s efficiency while creating an enduring data-driven culture, in order to provide a more personalized experience for every member of the Trustees audience. We look forward to reporting on the growth these new focal areas will enable the organization to achieve.

Trustees is always striving to create the next generation of stewards of our special places and convey the critical importance of conservation and preservation—to build a broader audience of Trustees members, donors, and staff to forward our mission long into the future. To accomplish this important objective, the organization seeks to always

Sharing THE SPLENDOR

The Old Manse, Concord

BY JEFF HARDER

H

Having visited more than 20 Trustees reservations across the Commonwealth, Tom Nicholson has reached a conclusion: he treasures them all. Sure, he has fond memories of certain properties—studying the modernist pinwheel of The Folly at Field Farm while a student at Williams College, picking flowers and vegetables with his grandchildren at Appleton Farms, or boating to Misery Islands. But more than any particular destination, seeing up close so many special, publicly accessible places looms largest. “Many Trustees members have specific properties that they’re close to— for me, not so much,” he says. “I love them all because they’re all so different.”

L E AV I N G A

LEGACY thetrustees.org/svs

Tom, chair of The Trustees’ Semper Virens Society, grew up sailing, fishing, hiking, and scouting as a child in Rhode Island. His working life was spent in international sales and marketing for several sensor and electronics companies, traveling the world and, for the last 43 years, living in Weston with Cathy, his wife and mother of their three children. His passion for the outdoors never abated. “As I grew older and began my retirement, I realized I wanted to do more with conservation locally,” Tom says. Harnessing his corporate experience, he volunteered his skills in strategic planning to the Earthwatch Institute and other nonprofits. That path led him to The Trustees nearly 20 years ago. In 2002, Tom joined the Field Operations committee, helping create The Trustees’ first strategic plan and visiting reservations across the state to determine their potential for program development. In the years since, he has served on a variety of committees, including marketing, engagement, and strategic enterprise, before becoming chair of the Semper Virens Society in 2016. It’s a fitting role: Tom has been a steadfast advocate for the concept of planned giving, both for its unique tax advantages as well as its importance to sustaining the

organization. “Besides volunteering, planned giving is an ideal way to involve myself in the future of The Trustees,” Tom says. Along with his first planned gift in 2005, last year Tom created a charitable gift annuity funded with securities. “Planned giving, through a charitable gift annuity, is a wonderful way to give back, keep an income stream for retirement, and support the legacy of The Trustees for me, my children, and my grandchildren.” He has also used smart planning to support The Trustees annually by taking advantage of the IRA Charitable Rollover—a real win-win scenario: contributions count toward his required minimum distribution and he is able to further the organization’s work at the same time. These days, sharing the splendor of The Trustees with their grandchildren is always on the Nicholsons’ mind. “It’s great fun to see their enthusiasm about places we want them to know about,” Cathy says, recalling a few of them running up the Grand Allée during a concert at the Crane Estate. And through the years, Tom adds, The Trustees has offered a common ground for lasting friendships. “You go out walking with them, hiking with them, and all the rest, and it’s so lovely,” he says. “Everyone is so wonderful.”

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.

SPOTLIGHT

Trustees Together Fund We’re all in this together. For most of 2020, we have all experienced a global crisis of unprecedented proportions. As we have learned to navigate disrupted lives and lifestyles, one thing became clear— our communities are what matter most. Throughout this pandemic, The Trustees has been providing safe, open, outdoor space for families across Massachusetts. We have been making fresh, healthy, locally grown food available to our communities. We have offered safe summer camps and programming—online and in-person in small, well-distanced groups— encouraging exploration and creativity for children and families across the Commonwealth. And we have been there for you, when you needed the refuge of nature more than ever.

TRUSTEES TOGETHER FUND

Now, we need you. We are facing many challenges. While we continue to fulfill our mission and maintain our commitment to the safety of our members, visitors, and staff, our traditional sources of revenue such as admissions, special events, and our broad range of programs and tours have gone away. We now need our community to commit to increased support—through the new Trustees Together Fund—to help us get through this difficult time. Give today. Help ensure Trustees can continue to provide these much-needed services and access to the healing powers of nature. Donations made to this fund are critical to our continued operations as this crisis stretches on, helping us to meet the additional costs caused by the pandemic and the burdens placed on our staff.

ANNUAL REPORT 2020 23


Cumulative Giving The Directors and staff of The Trustees extend our sincere thanks to the following donors who committed their support to The Trustees. This list of incredible supporters contributed to our strategic plan, funded our mission during our 2020 fiscal year (April 1, 2019 through March 31, 2020,) and supported special projects—like the acquisition of Jewell Hill, as featured on page 6. We are deeply grateful to these generous funders for their foresight and commitment to The Trustees. They fuel our thoughtful growth, expand our reach, and deepen our impact. $5,000,000 +

ANNUAL REPORT 2020 35


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 (16)
