Protecting Open Spaces in Arlington
The Arlington Land Trust, Inc. has as its mission the permanent protection of open spaces for the benefit of our community’s quality of life, environmental health, and all our citizens.
We are deeply saddened to report that Brian Rehrig passed away on January 21 after a long illness.
Brian was one of a small group who established the Land Trust in 1999 and he served as the treasurer and guiding light for more than 20 years. It is impossible to recount all the wisdom and expertise that he contributed to this organization, and to the promotion of land conservation and community service in Arlington and beyond.
We have lost a dear friend and advocate for open space preservation. Recently Brian focused tirelessly on efforts to protect the open space and wetlands on the Mugar property in East Arlington.
The Rehrig family has suggested that donations in Brian’s memory be made to the Arlington Land Trust Mugar Protection Fund. Those wishing to make a memorial donation will find the fund on the Join/Donate page.
