Founded in 1977, Stow Conservation Trust is a 100% volunteer organization.
Protection, care and celebration of the land. Over the years, this has resonated with Stow citizens. It is a continuing process of appreciation for what the land gives us – from the bugs and skunk cabbage to the tall trees and diversity of birds; from its contribution to a healthy environment to providing a buffer from congestion, crowding, and heavy demands that come with too many houses too quickly. Whether you go out on the land or not, it has a significant impact on us all.
