Works with Scouts to Improve Trails
The Woodbridge Land Trust is pleased to announce that Dr. Bryan H Pines has been elected President of the Board of Directors. He succeeds Christopher Keevil who remains on the Board and will serve as its Investment Officer.
Bryan and his wife, Debby are life-long residents of Woodbridge and avid gardeners in Woodbridge’s community garden. As a Cub Scout and Boy Scout growing up in Woodbridge, Bryan developed an appreciation for Woodbridge’s natural beauty, and has volunteered his time and resources to protect, preserve and maintain its trails, farms, and open spaces. “For over 50 years I have been enjoying our trails and although the landscape in the town has changed over the years, our protected open spaces and trails provide beauty to the town while connecting us to previous generations.”
Dr. Pines supports the Land Trust’s commitment to working with community groups that support the goals and mission of the Trust. In partnership with local Woodbridge Scouts, the Trust has funded Brendan Purcell’s Eagle Scout bridge construction project to improve access to the Gregory Robert trail and is currently working with Girl Scout troop 60574 to develop a trail maintenance and Geocaching plan. Troop leader Stacy Wyner says that “the scouts are excited to be able to serve the community while earning their badges.”
Established in 1964, the Woodbridge Land Trust is a tax exempt, nonprofit corporation committed to the conservation, preservation and protection of our natural resources. We rely on the generosity of the community and our donors to accomplish the goals of the Trust.
