Green Friday

Can you get outside every day this weekend?

Around this time every year, inboxes teem with emails screaming about Black Friday deals, and this year is no different except perhaps that fewer people will be rushing to the malls. Many people in The Trustees community already embrace Green Friday as an alternative to shopping, and this year we encourage you and your household to extend Green Friday through the whole weekend.

The weather forecast looks fabulous, and with over 100 properties to choose from, the odds of being physically distant while enjoying fresh air are really good. So consult a map, pack a mask, and explore our beautiful places!

Here are a few resources for you to get outside this weekend:
