NatioNal Heritage Corridor
Annual
Report
2013
N at i o n a l H e r i ta g e C o r r i d o r
We work for a healthy environment. We work to preserve the
traditional character of your town. We work for an energized
place to grow your business and provide a great quality of life.
– P. Bradford Cheney

Message from the Chairman
I am pleased to report that The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) has completed
another successful year. Walktober saw an increase of 25% in participation
for the 23rd annual program. TLGV measured $278 million in the economic
impacts of tourism for 2013, with more than 1.9 million visitors enjoying our
beautiful National Heritage Corridor through activities like outdoor recreation,
sightseeing, and fairs and festivals. More than 1,200 students received handson environmental science education through our Watershed Education
Program, inspiring them to make sound choices for the place where they live.
TLGV worked with hundreds of volunteers who donated 1,323 hours of their
time to clean up trails and river ways, monitor water quality, and represent
TLGV at public events, a value of $153,649. TLGV has connected residents
to producers more directly and now locally-produced foods are the norm at
eateries and markets, not an anomaly.
There are over 315,000 people that live here in The Last Green Valley. We work
for a healthy environment. We work to preserve the traditional character of
your town. We work for an energized place to grow your business and provide
a great quality of life.
Our goal is simple: we strive to bring the best that New England has to offer
to all who visit or live here. With the help of volunteers, the support of our 35
member towns, and the hard work of our talented staff, we will continue the
important work to meet that challenging goal.

The forests of The Last
Green Valley are filtering
1.2 million tons of carbon
from the air each year,
creating 1.4 million tons
of new topsoil, and
producing enough oxygen
for 8.3 million people,
more than 27 times its
population of 300,000.
