Message from BTLT Executive Director, During COVID-19 Outbreak

Due to rapidly changing conditions and recommendations from local, state and federal agencies regarding COVID-19, we are postponing all of our community programs and activities through the end of April. The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and community are our primary concerns and we hope to help limit the spread of COVID-19 through these measures.

Towards that end, we want to share some additional changes we have made during these difficult times:

  • The Land Trust office is now closed to outside visitors. Please call or email if you need to reach us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
  • Staff are working remotely but can be reached via email and/or phone.
  • We have canceled all events through April 30.
  • Programs and events scheduled to start after April 30 are being assessed on an on-going basis and we will communicate regularly to keep you informed about their status. Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram and check www.btlt.org for updates.

As you know, the COVID-19 situation changes daily and the Land Trust is working to adapt and respond as needed. We will keep you updated on these changes as they come and thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility during these unprecedented times.

In the meantime, we will keep doing what we do best: conserving and caring for land in the Brunswick-Topsham area and connecting all of you to our incredible natural resources. In these anxiety-provoking times, we will strive to support our community by sharing resources and opportunities for getting out into nature and encouraging ways to find comfort and relief while practicing safe social distancing. BTLT maintains 23 miles of trails on the more than 2,900 acres of land we have conserved, and we encourage you to make use of them, especially now, when so many other recreational opportunities are unavailable.

At its heart, the mission of the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust is to ensure a healthy planet in every sense. Wishing you peace, health, and solace in nature from your friends at the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust.

Yours,

Angela Twitchell

Executive Director
