A special presentation will follow on the state-threatened “Blanding’s Turtle” by Rehoboth resident Madeleine Linck who has studied freshwater turtles for more than 30 years.
You’ll learn about the types of turtles you are likely to encounter in Rehoboth including “Blanding’s Turtle” named after Dr. William Blanding (1774-1857), a medical doctor, apothecary and also one of the leading naturalists of his day. Born and raised in Rehoboth, Blanding was a graduate of Brown University who practiced medicine locally and later lived for several decades in South Carolina before returning to Rehoboth.
The work of the Rehoboth Land Trust (RLT) is supported through the volunteer efforts and generous donations of its members and friends. To date, the RLT has conserved over 230 acres, provided public access to open space and continues to work with property owners to preserve the landscape and conserve natural resources that benefit the community.
The RLT is a 501(C)(3) organization. Join our membership, as an Individual ($25), a Family ($50), a Sustainer ($100), or support us at a level of your choice. Please mail your check to Rehoboth Land Trust, PO Box 335, Rehoboth, MA. 02769. Checks should be made payable to Rehoboth Land Trust. We are always looking for volunteers to help with
everything from trail care to digital expertise. Thank you for joining us in these important efforts.
Rehoboth’s blessed with special places
Ponds and forests, open spaces,
Where friends and family hike and talk,
To find a frog and see a hawk.
Help preserve the oaks and cherries,
Help conserve the grapes and berries,
Help us keep our town a jewel,
Now’s the time for your renewal.
