Want to have fun, meet new people and help preserve the natural beauty of Plymouth? Then join Keep Plymouth Green. As those of us privileged to live here know, Plymouth has exceptionally beautiful ponds, beaches, forests, bogs and wildlife. However, some of that beauty is at risk. We, who are dedicated to retaining its natural beauty, must work together to protect, preserve and maintain the community character, natural resources, open spaces and wildlife of Plymouth. Our main activities will be to help educate residents, town leaders, and visitors about the many economic and social benefits of natural open space. We will also assist with acquiring these special parcels that will be placed under the protection of conservation restrictions. As the native Americans who first settled here have said, "We don't own the land...we borrow it from our children." Please join us in doing so.
Dedicated volunteers help us with all aspects of our work – we couldn’t do it without you! Here at the Trust, we have a variety of volunteer positions to meet all schedules. Please read the descriptions below to discover which volunteer opportunity is right for you!
This poem is dedicated to all of you who work so hard for the environment...clean water, clean air, wildlife habitat, trails, .....
To Be of Use by Marge Piercy
The people I love the best
jump into work head first
without dallying in the shallows
and swim off with sure strokes almost out of sight.
They seem to become natives of that element,
the black sleek heads of seals
bouncing like half-submerged balls.
I love people who harness themselves, an ox to a heavy cart,
who pull like water buffalo, with massive patience,
who strain in the mud and the muck to move things forward,
who do what has to be done, again and again.
Deer Hunting.......Shotgun Nov. 27 – Dec. 9
Please be extra careful during this time. There appear to be more hunters during shotgun season than the other deer seasons. Wear orange, put orange vests on dogs and be safe.
