Our Projects & Events

Since the original 175-acre land purchase in 1974, the DRLT has acquired an additional 31 parcels of land, expanding our total holdings to over 800 acres.  In addition to acquiring and protecting land, we also participate in educational roles within our community.  Sponsored activities include spring hikes, summer camp-outs with the Boy Scouts of America, and conservation-oriented educational programs in our schools. 
And that’s not all...
We also host our increasingly popular “Winterfest” event, inviting the community to explore our Main Street Wildlife Preserve through a combination of cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and climbing aboard a horse-drawn sleigh.
In addition,  the Spring often finds us hosting one or more garden tours as well as our Annual Dinner at the Nashua (NH) Country Club.
As always, at any given time, we have many projects underway - from trail marking, to critical land parcel identification, to land acquisition.  If you would like to find out more about how you can help, please send an email to
The McLoon Project
Through grants provided by the Oliver S. and Jennie R. Donaldson Charitable Trust, the Trust is embarking on restoration of the historic barn, a process that could take several years.

 The initial grant funded the rebuilding of the overall structure, including flooring and siding.  A second phase will be to paint the building, replace of the existing roof, and finally replacing the cupola and thoroughly clean the barn inside.

The Trail Map Project
One of the ongoing efforts at the DRLT is to map our trails so that more and more people (and four legged friends!) can enjoy them.    Click on the link below for the latest update on our mapping efforts.

New!  The Trail Stewardship Program
Adopting a trail in Dunstable will be a great way to get outside and help out.  It doesn’t take money, just time with “your” trail.  A great idea for families!
