What Is The Last Green Valley?

Welcome to The Last Green Valley

The Last Green Valley is green by day and dark by night. We are a National Heritage Corridor with a rich history in a surprisingly rural landscape. With 84% forest and farm, we are the last swath of dark night sky in the coastal sprawl between Boston and Washington DC.

The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) works for you in the National Heritage Corridor. Together, we can care for it, enjoy it and pass it on!

Oh Yes!

A couple of years ago we hosted a Mars Party over at Ayer Farm in Franklin. It was a glorious night and we were lucky to be seeing Mars closer to Earth than it had been in our lifetimes. Its not that close this year, but starting this week, its as close as it will be for another couple of years. So, starting about an hour after dark get outside and look east. As the night goes on it will rise higher and higher heading south until about midnight when it will be fairly high in the southern sky. Mars is easy to spot once you know what to look for it. Its a star that is clearly reddish-orange.
