"McMike N' Polly" a team to help the FRANKLIN LAND TRUST INC...
WE REALLY WANT TO HELP EXPAND THE AMAZING EFFORTS OF THE TALENTED STAFF OF THE FLT IN IT'S MISSION TO PROTECT AND PRESERVE THE RURAL COMMUNITIES OF FRANKLIN COUNTY MASSACHUSETTS FOR BOTH OUR GRANDKIDS AND THEIR KIDS. Please help us help them to keep the ball rolling.
Polly was born n' raised here in Buckland, Massachusetts & attended local schools. We met while at Umass Amherst. Her first job after graduation in 1973 was as Art Teacher for local elementary schools where she shared so much, including her perception & appreciation of the ruaral surroundings she grew up with.
I followed Polly to Buckland after ventures as an environmental educator with the Greater Boston YMCA, The National Park Service, and Umass' 4-H Extension Service.The lure were these beautiful (human in scale) hills, fields, trails, and waterways in western Franklin County. We fully abide here today. The same allure of the land remains for others today with much thanks to the FLT and so many foresighted individuals there who have preserved over 30,000 acres in the region to date.
Please join us in helping to conserve and thoughtfully utilize these magical hills and dells with your modest (or more) contribution.
by the way; We are both volunteer site monitors. Let us know if you might like to learn more about it. It gets us out and about one day a year.
