Signed, Sealed and Delivered ... Thanks to You!

The Cataumet Greenway Is Greener

BCT lady slipper

Thanks to your support and generosity, six acres of land that abuts the DeNormandie Woods has been purchased and fully paid for (click here to see a map).  This land greatly enhances the Cataumet Greenway and expands the BCT's walking trails and habitat for local wildlife.  The purchase and sale agreement was signed at the end of December 2013.  Thanks to a matching gift and the generosity of 170 donors, the BCT was able to raise, by mid-April 2014, the funds necessary to cover the full cost without borrowing any funds.   The purchase is now complete and the land is protected today and for generations to come.  This is really good news for the BCT and for all of you who enjoy our trails and the more than 200 acres of open space in our town that has been purchased by or donated to the BCT.

More Thanks Along the Trails
The BCT has assembled a great team of Trail Meisters who oversee the care and maintenance of our trails.  And as you know there are many trails.  Like the rest of us, the Trail Meisters cannot be in all places at all times and cannot know what has happened on all the trails.  That's where many of you come in.  Thanks go out to our trail and dog walkers who notify us of problems (broken branches; downed trees, etc.);  pick up and dispose of trash; carry clippers to trim new growth; and provide support to the Trail Meisters.  
As always, special thanks go to our Trail Meisters:  Dick Boyden, Bill Dibella, Jay Fisher, George Gillis, Don Mears, Rick Rheinhardt, Carl Wirsen, and John Woodley. The BCT would not be the same without you!  
To report blow downs or other problems along the trails, please email the BCT: or call 508-563-2884.
