There are many ways you can help preserve, protect, and promote open space!
Become a MemberJoin our community so together we can preserve open space for future generations. We have several membership options.
Endow Open Space ForeverContribute to the future of permanent open space by donating to our new Nichols Endowment Fund. 94 acres of beautiful meadows, pathways, ponds, and woods, is open to the public for walking, cross-country skiing, horseback riding or leashed dog walking. Please ask your tax advisor about a stock transfer. (Be sure to note ‘Nichols Endowment’ when donating).
Attend Show LuncheonBuy your tickets early, as our elegant tented luncheon & silent auction, served ringside to the June show, gets sold out faster every year.
Support ConservationContribute to one of our ongoing conservation projects at Nichols Preserve. Let us know if you'd like to help the birds or the bees or the native plants.
Ride with FriendsParticipate in one of our trail riding events. We invite you to ride with your friends along the many miles of trails we work year-round to maintain.
Help Maintain TrailsOur full-time trail manager also helps keep trails clear on other conservation land properties like the Audubon, Land Trust, Boys & Girls Club, and some Town parks.
Put on Your GlovesBring your garden tools and come join us on Trail Clean Up Day. We tackle invasives, trim bushes, remove trash and picnic at our own Nichols Nature Preserve.
Sponsor a Stone WallIt costs $500 to rebuild a stone wall jump on our trails. Sponsoring is a wonderful way to support the GRTA and add to the trail-riding experience. Your tax-deductible donation will be recognized with a plaque.
