Diverged Ride 2017 Beneficiary: The Lexington Conservation Stewards

The Lexington Conservation Stewards is a group of over 230 volunteers who work closely with the Conservation Division to care for Lexington’s conservation land.  They protect and maintain the trails that many of us ride on very regularly.  We so appreciate all that The Lexington Conservation Stewards do on behalf of our cycling community and to show our support, OBC is donating half of the proceeds from The Diverged Ride to their efforts.

To continually improve the quality of Lexington’s conservation land, The Stewards:

  • Provide annual maintenance of trails and meadows
  • Build bridges and trails
  • Control invasive species
  • Clean up waterways
  • Host conservation events
  • Improve conservation infrastructure
  • Ensure the health of the wildlife habitat and ecosystem

Among many other projects, two current trail projects include:

If you are looking to get involved, they host Stewardship Saturdays where you can work with a volunteer group on a specific project – check out their site for 2017 spring and summer dates. 

Thank you to all of the volunteers of The Lexington Conservation Stewards – you rock!
