Since 2001 the Bolton Land Trust has helped landowners permanently preserve their land for people to enjoy or to remain undisturbed. The land trust board of directors is all-volunteer and the expenses of the trust are paid for through the generosity of dedicated members who consistently support the trust year after year. The trust is proud to have permanently preserved 333 acres in 14 parcels that include wetlands, forest land and river corridor.

                                                  Structures and Memorials Policy 

Placing a memorial on a land trust property is a lovely way to remember and honor loved ones.  The Bolton Land Trust board of directors has a responsibility to control the number and type of structures placed on land trust properties. Location, design and materials must be carefully considered to ensure that the structure or memorial blends into its natural setting and can be maintained far into the future.

If you are considering requesting that a memorial be placed on a Bolton Land Trust property, before designing, buying materials or constructing, including plaques, please contact the Bolton Land Trust to discuss the, design, materials and possible location.

Maintaining structures and memorials becomes the responsibility of the land trust board of directors so it is the policy of the board to request a monetary donation to cover any necessary maintenance in the future. Structures and memorials may be damaged, vandalized, stolen or deteriorate over time and although all attempts will be made to maintain them, they might have to be removed if repairing, maintaining or replacing them is no longer feasible.

To discuss a structure or memorial please contact Bolton Land Trust director Deb Livingston at or 860-930-6844.
