“Green” gift giving continues to be an increasingly popular trend among people looking for meaningful, thoughtful gifts that also give back.  As you think about gift ideas for family and friends this season, The Trustees of Reservations, the nation’s oldest statewide land conservation organization, suggest the idea of a “green gift membership” – a gift that not only shares your passion for nature, culture, the outdoors and protecting open space, but keeps on giving throughout the year. 

“We are pleased to see a consistent growth in gift memberships since we have been offering them over the last few years,” says Laurie O’Reilly, Director of Marketing and Membership. “Many of our supporters have appreciated knowing they can give a meaningful gift that also supports one of their favorite non-profit organizations.”

A Trustees of Reservations green gift Membership is the perfect gift for someone who loves the outdoors and also enjoys visiting, preserving, and protecting the scenic and historic landscapes and landmarks that define the character of our communities in Massachusetts.  Starting as low as $47 for individual members ($37 for students and seniors, $67 for families), a gift membership to The Trustees includes:

  • Free/reduced admission to 108 Trustees properties (including popular destinations like the Crane Estate in Ipswich, World’s End in Hingham, the Old Manse in Concord, the Bryant Homestead in Cummington, Doyle Center and Community Park in Leominster, Bartholomew’s Cobble in Tyringham, and Cape Poge on Martha’s Vineyard)
  • Discounts on stays at Trustees bed & breakfasts (The Inn at Castle Hill in Ipswich and the Guest House at Field Farm in Williamstown)
  • Discounted fees for the hundreds of events, programs, lectures and workshop the Trustees offer year-round, for all ages
  • The Trustees Property Guide, a 224-page guidebook to the organization’s 108 reservations-available exclusively to members
