The Trustees and friends of the Willistown Conservation Trust invite you to join in celebrating the acquisition of the beautiful 80-acre Rushton Woods Preserve, and to recognize the many organizations and individuals who helped purchase and preserve it forever.

 Thanks to the remarkable commitment of many, the permanent protection of the Rushton Woods Preserve, located at the corner of Goshen and Delchester Roads, assures that this special place will always be there for everyone to enjoy.

 Whether picking up fresh local produce at the Trust’s Rushton Farm, witnessing the capture of a tiny Saw-Whet Owl at our Bird Banding station, or hiking the two miles of trails through woodlands and fields that are home to a rich diversity of plants and wildlife, we hope you will share a feeling of ownership of this special place. It now belongs to all of us!  So …
