Waverly Trail

Many components here, but still needs coherent text.

Below is lifted from this page: https://www.nrtdatabase.org/trailDetail.php?recordID=3679

There seems to be much more information there that would be good on the BLT site, but I don’t want to just lift it. Does BLT have some good wording about this property?

The trail was entirely envisioned and realized by a group of private citizens known as the Waverley Trail Advisory Committee of the Belmont Land Trust over a period of about five years in the first decade of the 21st century. Design expertise was provided to the project by the design firm of Roll-Barresi and Associates, the same firm that designed the signage for Boston’s famous Freedom Trail. Specifically, a young designer at the firm, Michaelann Zimmerman, brought the graphic design of the project signage from conception to completion. In an ongoing effort, the Waverley Trial Advisory Committee now stewards the project, and has raised the funds to allow for the installation of brass sidewalk medallions along the path of the trail, at the same time that Trapelo Road is rebuilt in the 2012-2013 timeframe. From its very beginning, the Waverley Trail has enjoyed the enthusiastic support of local and regional political and civic leaders, including Belmont Selectmen Paul Solomon, Will Brownsberger and Angelo Firenze, Town Historian Richard Betts, and dozens of private donors, ranging from local schoolchildren and parents to Atkins family members whose great-grandfather made key donations supporting regional conservation and the protection of the Waverley Oaks as far back as 1893. Even the Belmont Media Center is offering highly-valued support as a proud sponsor of the project.

What was on previous webpage was simply the text of the second graders visit, below

Belmont’s Second Graders Tour Waverley Trail in the Fall of 2012

Belmont 2nd Graders on Waverley Trail

Led by Jim Levitt, members of the Belmont Land Trust conducted tours of the Waverley with the Second Grade classes from each of Belmont’s elementary schools.  Students learned about the history of Waverley Square and the Land Trust movement which was inspired by the magnificent Waverley Oak trees at Beaver Brook.  Each student was asked to think how he or she could do so something to be stewards of the open spaces we preserve for future generations to enjoy.
