Newsletters

Another key piece of OCT’s educational mission is our twice-annual newsletter, mailed to all members and widely available around Orleans. Although, like most organizations, we’re moving toward more digital communications, our print newsletter wins praise for its lively writing and eye-pleasing visuals.

In most issues you’ll find reports on the business of the Trust—updates on staff and trustees, meetings and events—along with profiles of members and supporters, news about recent land acquisitions and land management projects, and a published schedule of our Walks and Talks.

There are stories about Orleans families and individuals with deep connections to the land, firsthand accounts of exploring our trails, reports on issues of local concern (such as freshwater ponds), and articles by our guest speakers on their subject of expertise. The Fall/Winter issue contains our annual report on giving to the Trust.
