A List of Land Trust News and Notes


Land Trust event: Guided Nature Hike
Sunday, September 15, 2019, 1:00 p.m.

The Spencer property (pole 64 Old Danielson Pike) will be the site for the Foster Land Trust Days event this year. Martha Thoman, a knowledgeable local naturalist, will be leading a hike on the Boulder Field and Pot Luck trails. This hike winds through glacial moraine, passing boulders covered with interesting foliose lichen. The first half of this hike out to the Boulder Field is on an easy trail. Those not wanting to negotiate the more difficult rocky single track second half can return by the wider main trail. Total distance is approximately 2 miles. Wear sturdy shoes and bring your drinking water. Bug spray and sun screen are highly recommended. There are no facilities at this location.

This is a rain or shine event, so dress appropriately for the weather on Sunday, September 15, 2019. Please arrive by 1:00 pm so we can leave in one group.\

Maple Sugaring

TheLand Trust would like to hear from people who are interested in maple sugaring (we are keeping it for personal use for the time being, not a large scale operation); and we are waiting to hear from Beekeepers who would like to set up hives on FLT property, some of the larger fields are very suitable for such activity.


Your help in volunteering is always welcome!
Stewardship of the properties is the responsibility of the Foster Land Trust; however, we welcome the trail users help in keeping the trails clear. We encourage you to take a pair of loppers or branch clippers for a walk with you on a trail. Clearing fallen branches from trails is very helpful too. If you encounter any downed trees or heavy branches please contact us at fosterlandtrust@gmail.com and we will have it removed.
