Today is World Bee Day! At MLT’s Santos Farm property and the Blueberry Patch property we actually have local beekeepers raising honey bees on our land. We love providing space for these helpful creatures that pollinate the wildflowers on our properties. In turn, the bees and beekeepers produce some amazing local honey and beeswax products! ...

Vernal pools are extremely important breeding habitats for frogs, toads, salamanders, and more. They also provide a source of food and water to many different bird species. In the coming weeks of spring well into the summer, the vernal pools in Mattapoisett will be teeming with life.

Thursdays are for getting out on the trails. On Thursday afternoons our dedicated volunteers organize and meet to do trail maintenance or other stewardship projects that ensure all MLT properties stay in tip top shape. Check out what we’ve done recently on our stewardship work days in the Brandt Island Cove District: volunteers designed, built, and installed two new benches with reclaimed wood and cut a new portion of trail which makes a lovely walking loop at the end of the marsh. Soon, we’ll have new signs and blazes up too to finalize the new trail portion. Go check it out!Email if you’re interested in joining these volunteer stewardship days. ... See MoreSee Less
