About the Stewards

The Bedford conservation land stewards are a group of volunteers who care for the conservation areas of Bedford, Massachusetts. Established in 1995, we work closely with the Bedford Conservation Commission and Trails Committee but are an independent organization.

Stewards get to know our conservation areas over time and serve as a voice advocating for them in our town.We present field reports twice a year at our Spring and Fall meetings. Input from land stewards gives the Conservation Commission the information they need to best serve the town and preserve our natural spaces.

We need you! Become a land steward. Contact us at bedfordlandstewards@gmail.com. Come to one of our meetings. Send us an enrollment form.

Fawn Lake Hatchlings

Bob Scoville, steward of the Wilderness Park conservation area, shared these photos of a new generation of snapping turtles between Fawn Lake and Wilderness Park.

The mother turtle laid her eggs in Bob's yard on June 7th. He and his family saw the babies emerge on September 18th.

Thanks for sending these!
