Just a handy reminder that the Globe GRANT vouchers need to be in the mail by 3/1. We're thrilled to see that we're currently #5, but we need your help to stay up in the top bunch. Huge THANKS to all who've helped! Learn more about this fab program that supports non-profits (it's FREE for you to do, too!): http://b.globe.com/1fFhz39 #globegrant

We think this seal pup wants Boston Globe subscribers to give The Trustees some love when they get their silver #GlobeGRANT envelopes in the mail! What's all this about?? Well, it's a nifty program where subscribers show their support (for FREE!) for #nonprofits by choosing which ones are given free advertising space in The Boston Globe. We'd be so grateful to have your support...every bit helps us do what we do!

April showers bring May flowers…
It’s May, and the weather can only get better, right? So get out and enjoy a Trustees garden in bloom! From our new Perennial Garden at The Stevens-Coolidge Place in Andover (highlighted as a Hidden Gem in Northshore Magazine's May/June issue – thanks gang!) to blooming peonies at Naumkeag in Stockbridge, here’s our list of must-see gardens to get you going. http://bit.ly/1maTqSJ #gardens #historicgardens

We're thinking spring (though it's just a tad chilly today)! Take a peek at the amazing antique seed packets we dug up in our archives from Naumkeag: http://on.fb.me/OB85K6 #seedpackets   #spring   #gardening

Anyone thinking that a toasty beach day sounds pretty fantastic right about now? Well then, secure your place on the sand with a Trustees membership + Crane Beach sticker – then get a different kind of shovel ready. Early bird special discount available now! http://bit.ly/LPUm0w

Go on an Instagram scavenger hunt with us this winter!

Here's what to do:
--Grab your smartphone & head out to any of our reservations (http://bit.ly/1d5bZVz).
--Using Instagram, snap a pic of any of these things:
People playing in snow
Wildlife
Animal tracks
Ice
Shadows
Sunrise/sunset
--Tag your Instagram photo with #FrostyFun2014 and #thetrustees. Let us know where you took your pic, too.

We'll share some of our faves on our social media channels (crediting the photographers, of course). Have fun out there!

Hot off the press! A groundbreaking new study, "Changes to the Land: Four Scenarios for the Future of the Massachusetts Landscape," was just released by Harvard Forest. We're honored and delighted to have collaborated on this important project. Read the report here: http://bit.ly/1e5BIyi.
