"The marsh, to him who enters it in a receptive mood, holds, besides mosquitoes and stagnation, melody, the mystery of unknown waters, and the sweetness of Nature undisturbed by man."

~ Charles William Beebe (1877-1962),
Log of the Sun, 1906 

Meet Our New Operations Manager

Nicole Image2The Tiverton Land Trust is happy to announce that Nicole Kirkos has joined our staff as Operations Manager.  Nicole started her career with a Bachelor's Degree in Marine Science from Stockton University in New Jersey.  Her first internship was with the United States Fish and Wildlife Services at Edwin B Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge where she dove into any and all wildlife and habitat conservation efforts.  Nicole has worked with shorebirds, amphibians, coastal wildlife, and  forest habitats from Florida to New Jersey to Maine. 

Nicole settled in Tiverton after accepting a job with Massachusetts Department of Coastal Resources on the Horseneck Beach State Reservation.  In addition to being Operations Manager for the Tiverton Land Trust she holds a similar position with the Sippican Lands Trust in Marion, MA. Nicole states that “being able to conserve local land and assist the TLT with operations management, land acquisition, and stewardship is such a dream. When I'm not working I am hiking and birding as often as possible!”

We’re excited to have Nicole join us and look forward to working with her as we continue to work to preserve Tiverton’s rural nature.

Local Birds

The woods and trails of the Tivertron Land Trust provide a great place to view local birds.  There a wide variety of species that make the Tiverton Land Trust their home.  With the pandemic, travel and vacation plans have been cancelled, leaving us all to look for things to do locally.  What better way to get out of the house than get closer to nature than a visit to the Land Trust properties.  Print out these cheklists to help keep track of the birds you see.  Fort Barton Woods, Pocasset Ridge, Pardon Gray and Weetamoo Woods
