THE CAMPAIGN: A NEED AND A SOLUTION In recent years the task of managing the Quarry has overwhelmed the all-volunteer Trust. Happily, there is a great solution. The Trustees of Reservations has agreed to take ownership of the Quarry and will bring 130 years of experience in conservation and managing outdoor recreation properties. The Trustees of Reservations will work with the Becket Land Trust to keep the property open to the public, maintain and improve the recreational areas and manage the wildlife and forestry programs that are in place.
For Becket and the Quarry this is our best case scenario and will only increase the appeal for all to enjoy this significant natural and historic asset. To enable the transfer, The Trustees of Reservations has requested that the Trust endow the Quarry with a $200,000 Stewardship Fund.
Successfully bringing the Trustees of Reservations to the Historic Quarry and Forest will permanently ensure its future as a unique and beautiful feature of the Berkshires. With your help it can be done!
If you prefer to donate by check please make it out to Becket Land Trust, Inc. and send to: PO Box 44, Becket, MA 01223
