Vote to Improve the Western Greenway Trail

If you are a Waltham resident, you can help us improve the Western Greenway trail by going to Belmont Savings Bank’s charitable giving program and voting for the Waltham Land Trust. If we receive the highest number of votes, we would get $10,000 to pay for more Western Greenway trail maps, more aluminum locator maps along the trail, plus tools and training for two years of Western Greenway volunteer stewards. Vote now (once per device) and help us spread the word until the voting ends on Friday, May 27.

The Western Greenway trail, our fantastic community resource, thanks you!

Duke Robillard to Play
Green Space Blues Jam

Buy your tickets now for the 12th Annual Green Space Blues Jam happening on Saturday, May 21. The Jam will take place once again at the Hobbs Brook Facility located at 175 Wyman Street. Duke Robillard, the evening’s star entertainment, has been the recipient of numerous blues guitarist awards in the US and abroad. He has played with many greats including Bob Dylan, and he replaced Jimmy Vaughan in the Fabulous Thunderbirds. BB King himself called Duke 'one of the greatest.’

The event starts at 7:00pm and runs to 11:00pm. The evening includes appetizers, dinner, desserts, and drinks (beer, wine, non-alcoholic beverages), plus access to a huge silent auction. Tickets for current WLT members are only $50. Ticket price for non-members is $65 (pay $70 to join us at a discount and get the member price ticket). To sponsor or donate an item, please email Sonja. Stay tuned as we work out the details of the menu, accumulate auction items, and recognize sponsors.

What are the natural features which make a township handsome? A river, with its waterfalls and meadows, a lake, a hill, a cliff or individual rocks, a forest, and ancient trees standing singly. Such things are beautiful; they have a high use which dollars and cents never represent. If the inhabitants of a town were wise, they would seek to preserve these things, though at considerable expense; for such things educate more than any hired teachers or preachers, or at any present recognized system of school education. -- Henry David Thoreau
