Roots & Resilience

at High Street Place on Thursday, October 17 at 6PM

Thursday, October 17, 2024
High Street Place
100 High St.
Boston, MA 02210

Join us in the city for an evening of cocktails, conversation, and community as we celebrate our exciting work in and around Boston—a city integral to both our past and future as a land conservation organization.

The Trustees was founded in Boston more than 130 years ago in response to the rapid industrialization happening in the city and across Massachusetts. Today, The Trustees aspires to acquire and protect more urban open space, to grow its outreach and engagement in Boston, and to build a diverse new generation of environmental stewards and enthusiasts.

Through our 56 Boston community gardens, our waterfront resiliency efforts, and our education and outdoor experience programs for youth in Boston and beyond, we plan to establish The Trustees as the leading urban land conservation organization in the Commonwealth.

Event attendees will also learn about the many ways volunteer support powers our work in Boston, from our community garden coordinators to our individual and corporate volunteer partnerships.

Roots & Resilience event proceeds will help The Trustees expand access to fresh food, build resilient open spaces for climate mitigation, and offer more outdoor experience opportunities to youth in Boston and beyond.

Your support is vital to helping us realize our vision of a thriving, sustainable future for Boston.
