I would like to give a shout-out to the Essex Land Trust for its admirable work over the years to provide our community with wonderful opportunities for walking and hiking in the many land trust properties. The trails were purchased by a group of dedicated individuals who had the original vision of preservation and who have painstakingly maintained them. The hard work of the stewards has made it possible in this challenging time for us, the citizens of this lovely community, to take advantage of these beautiful trails by getting out of our houses and enjoying nature.
I encourage your readers to acknowledge the years of dedication and hard work of this team by supporting the Essex Land Trust. The new guide to all the local trails is available for purchase by non-members; it provides information and maps for all the trails in town. I suggest that everyone get out and enjoy!
