What is BTA/BOLT?
The Boxford Trails Association/Boxford Open Land Trust is an all volunteer, nonprofit organization, dedicated to preserving and protecting environmentally and aesthetically important land and habitat, including fields, forests, wetlands, and trails, preserving the nature of Boxford.
BTA/BOLT board members and volunteers monitor many land parcels and maintain the extensive Boxford trail system. Tax deductible contributions and member dues support BTA/BOLT, Inc.
When founded in 1978, BTA (Boxford Trails Association) preserved and maintained trails for passive recreation. In 1998, we changed our name to BTA/BOLT, Inc. (Boxford Trails Association/Boxford Open Land Trust) to note the organization's mission to conserve and protect open space as well as trails. In 2005, BTA/BOLT was among the first 39 land trusts to be accredited by the Land Trust Alliance (LTA).
