Coastal Mountains Land Trust invites the community to a Beech Nut open house at Beech Hill in Rockport Wednesday, July 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Land trust volunteers will open Beech Nut, the historic sod-roofed stone hut, and provide guests with information about the history and management of the preserve, including the hut and the surrounding blueberry farm. Visitors may also enjoy field guides, spotting scopes and a Beech Hill community scrapbook. Beech Nut open houses occur twice a month from May through October. A complete list of open house dates and events is available on the website, or call 236-7091 for more information.
