The Hilltown Land Trust (HLT) serves thirteen rural towns in western Massachusetts (Ashfield, Chester, Chesterfield, Conway, Cummington, Goshen, Huntington, Middlefield, Plainfield, Westhampton, Williamsburg, Windsor and Worthington). Their mission is to maintain the area’s working farms and forests as a vital part of hill town life, and to protect the area’s rich ecological resources, species diversity, native habitats, water quality, and unique scenic landscapes. Recently, Connecting Point Host Jim Madigan talked with HLT’s Executive Director Sally Loomis and AmeriCorps Land Steward Nicole Rhodes to learn more about their Organization. This interview was conducted at the Chester Railway Museum.
