The Conservancy organizes several regularly scheduled events. In addition, special events, often organized with partners, may offer a special speaker or exhibit, a nature hike, or an opportunity to clean up or remove invasives from an area. The best way to stay up to date on upcoming events is to look for the Upcoming Events announcement at the bottom of each page.
In accordance with the bylaws, the Marblehead Conservancy holds member meetings once a year for the purpose of member voting on nominations for Board positions and for any other issues desirous of member input. These meetings are held in late March or early April and are announced in a February Conservancy newsletter.

Earth Day / Arbor Day
National Earth Day and Arbor Day recognitions do not fall on the same calendar date and often conflict with local school vacation times. As a result, the Conservancy arranges an event on a single calendar date recognizing both Earth and Arbor Days. This date typically falls on a Saturday at the end of an April public school vacation week.
Guide-led group perambulations of Marblehead’s public pathways are arranged and offered to the public every two years. The date of a groups perambulation may vary but is typically arranged for the first Saturday following the Town elections in May. In between group events, try the self-guided perambulations. Just click on “Secret Passageways” in the Explore menu. Then click on the site of your choice to retrieve instructive text and photographs of the area. Enjoy!
The purpose of both the group and self-guided perambulations is to make sure we don’t lose nooks and crannies which the town owns but which sometimes get “absorbed” into neighbors’ yards.
