Up North they call it “Locking Time”. That’s when the earth goes to sleep, dreaming of Spring. Brewster has been locked down tight for a month now since Blizzard Juno in January left us two feet of snow, serious erosion of the banks along the Bay shore, and irritability for our motorists.
But the volunteers of the Brewster Conservation Trust have stayed wide awake, making plans for new land projects for the coming year. We have embarked on a strategic planning project to guide our allocation of resources and focus our energies. We have drafted budgets for our several committees. We have welcomed back Beth Finch to our board of trustees. We have cleared Windmill Meadows for the season and it looked its most spiffy for the Windmill lighting ceremony.
Finally, we have retained Brewster native son Jeff Thibodeau as a part-time consultant to assist our outreach to landowners. Jeff is trained as a landscape architect and has experience in the commercial, non-profit and municipal planning realms. He works out of the office at The Compact of Cape Cod Conservation Trusts, with our long-time advisor Mark Robinson. Check back here for exciting announcements by BCT throughout the year.
