Conservation Works provided trail design and grant writing services to the Broad Brook Coalition in their efforts to renovate an existing bridge and boardwalk at the Fitzgerald Lake Conservation Area in Northampton. On site visits and in-person consultation explored a few alternative designs and construction approaches before determining the best approach for the project. CW provided a detailed cost estimate for the various phases of the project that the Coalition used as the basis for developing a Recreational Trails Grant application.

Services Provided

Design, planning, and layout of ecologically sound trails and trail systems. We work with landowners and stakeholders to provide the type of enjoyable and quality trails that will appeal to visitors. We have experience developing trails that span a wide range of usages, from handicapped accessible trails to challenging single track.

We help clients identify appropriate funding sources, develop grant proposals and other applications, and administer project funds, as needed. Often clients will come to us with a general idea about a project or the ultimate vision they would like to achieve but without a solid understanding of how to achieve that goal. We assist clients in identifying the various elements of a project, and appropriate phases and timeframes for each. Once the project components are known, we can identify multiple funding sources that a project may be eligible for and use these funds to leverage more money to meet your goals.

We’re here to make conservation work for you!
