The land in the trust will not only be permanently protected but will be more visible and accessible for people who want to enjoy it. A new interactive website ( www.nu.com/landmanagement) will have maps, pictures and videos of the property to help identify hiking trails and other recreation opportunities. The website will also offer information about dozens of other properties the company owns that are not in the land trust but are still open for the public to use. The parcels in the land trust are being donated by the company, with no cost to customers.
