Pulpit Rock Stewardship Campaign

We are looking for your help to grow the Pulpit Rock Stewardship Campaign.  We realize that choosing to donate is an important decision.  We hope you will consider the Pulpit Rock Stewardship Campaign as a part of your gift giving.

As a rock formation that was created some 14,000 years ago when the glaciers retreated, Pulpit Rock seems indestructible today.  You may wonder why the Bedford Land Trust is taking steps to protect this historical geographic formation at this time.  The answer is clear to anyone who has walked through the Pulpit Rock Conservation Area on a crisp fall day or, has had the opportunity to snowshoe its trails through freshly fallen snow.  The 338 acre Pulpit Rock Conservation Area is much more than a rock.  With 4 miles of trails, the historic Gage's sawmill site, Indian Rock and the lovely Pulpit Brook, there is a lot to save and protect.

In 2013, the Bedford Land Trust was granted a conservation easement on this property which is owned by the Town of Bedford.  Together, we will continue to protect this conservation area for public enjoyment and nature conservation.  As such, the Bedford Land Trust is responsible for monitoring the Pulpit Rock Conservation Area to assure that it will be preserved in its natural state for the benefit of its ecology, wildlife and our future generations.  Conservation efforts through this monitoring help us to maintain Pulpit Rock as a conservation area for public enjoyment and wildlife habitat—forever.

Would you begin your gift giving or pledge $1 an acre ($338), payable over the next 3 years, to help ensure the permanent conservation of Pulpit Rock?  Donations are easy.  You can complete and mail in a pledge form with a check or, make an online donation here. 

Leadership donors who give $1,000 or more will receive an 8"x10" or 8"x12" copy of the beautiful photo of Pulpit Rock taken by Richard Lewis, as well as recognition in our annual newsletter and on our website, including logo placement for corporate donors.

Thank you all who have donated so far to this important campaign!
