Arlington Land Trust and Friends of Arlington’s Great Meadows Establish a Stewardship Fund

The Arlington Land Trust (ALT) and the Friends of Arlington’s Great Meadows (FoAGM) are pleased to announce the formation of a financial sponsorship agreement.  ALT will establish a tax-deductible fund to receive individual contributions as well as public and private grants for supporting the ongoing stewardship activities of FoAGM. 

Arlington’s Great Meadows is a 183-acre parcel of land owned by the Town of Arlington and located in adjacent East Lexington.  It has long been enjoyed by area residents as a place of natural beauty offering diverse natural habitats, including extensive wetlands, upland forests, meadows, vernal pools, and other natural communities. It is the largest natural, undeveloped space in Arlington or Lexington.

Anyone wishing to make tax-deductible contributions to this effort can make checks out to “ALT FoAGM Fund” and send them to PO Box 492, Arlington MA  02476.

The Friends of Arlington’s Great Meadows are a group of residents of Arlington, Lexington and beyond, who care deeply about Arlington’s Great Meadows.  We are committed to the preservation and stewardship of this remarkable natural landscape by working together with officials of the towns of Arlington and Lexington and with citizens everywhere who care about it.  More information about this group and its activities can be found at their website:  www.FoAGM.org

The Arlington Land Trust is a community-based nonprofit organization established in 2000 to protect undeveloped land in Arlington.  All individuals interested in open space and land conservation issues are invited to join and participate in its activities.  More information about this group can be found at their website: www.arlingtonlandtrust.org
