In an effort to preserve Roxbury’s heritage and landscape, the Roxbury Land Trust focuses on conserving open space, preserving Roxbury’s history, saving the farms, protecting the waterways, offering recreational access, and educating residents with educational walks and hikes throughout the year. The Land Trust maintains 32 preserves, most of which are open to the public. Today 3,675 acres are conserved as open space under the Trust’s stewardship.
The Roxbury Land Trust can always use volunteers. Some ways to help out include monitoring and maintaining trails and preserves, guiding trail walks, and accompanying school groups on preserves outings.
