Celebrating 30 Years!


Thank you to everyone who attended the Westerly Land Trust’s 30th anniversary kickoff event at Sunnyacres Preserve on April 30, 2017.  What a wonderful way to start our year-long celebration!

Board President Sheilia Beattie unveiled the sign for Sunnyacres Preserve, our 30th property, during commentary from Executive Director Kelly Presley.  Guests were happy to then hear sentiments from Ellen Madison who worked with us to protect this beautiful land that has been in her family for four generations.

The 12-acre hayfield was the perfect backdrop for an aerial photo taken by Chris Walsh and, despite the windy conditions, the drone captured our “30” to commemorate the special day.

Thank you to all of our supporters, sponsors, members and land donors for helping the Westerly Land Trust continue our success in saving Westerly’s open spaces!
