Accreditation

Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust Earns National Recognition

Accreditation Awarded by the Land Trust Accreditation Commission

 The Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust was awarded accreditation this August. Accredited land trusts are authorized to display a seal (at left) indicating to the public that they meet national standards for excellence, uphold the public trust and ensure that conservation efforts are permanent. The seal is a mark of distinction in land conservation.

“The accreditation seal is a testament to our organization’s commitment to conservation in Lowell for generations to come. Having met the standards of accreditation signifies that our organization upholds a level of excellence in community conservation, organizational management, and leadership,” said Jane Calvin, Executive Director.  Read the full press release here.

Concord River Greenway

     The Concord River Greenway Park (also know as the CRG or Greenway) is a multi-use trail through the green heart of Lowell.  Parts of it run along an old railroad bed, while it contours the scenic, tree-lined, north-flowing Concord River.  The Greenway is an excellent place to enjoy being outdoors, recreate, exercise and enjoy observing a biodiversity of wildlife from otters and foxes to hawks and mergansers.  We anticipate, in the long range vision of the park, a link from the Greenway to the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail (the BFRT has a trailhead by Showcase Cinemas in Lowell) See trail connection map here.  We can use your help via membership support.  To learn more about the history and science of the Concord River Greenway, visit the Greenway Classroom pages.
