Eastern Tire & Auto Service recently presented a check to Georges River Land Trust as sponsors of the land trust's 30th anniversary.

Since 1987, the land trust has protected 3,700 acres of natural habitat, woodlands, wetlands, agricultural lands, shorefronts, and scenic properties important to the citizens and 14 towns in the Georges River watershed.

Eastern Tire has supported the programs of the land trust for more than 10 years. It currently runs “Cars for Conservation,” a vehicle donation program where all proceeds from the sale of donated vehicles support local land protection, nature education, and the 50-mile Georges Highland Path trail system.
