Meadow named in Memory of Thomas Bischoff

The Lyme Land Trust regrets to inform you that Thomas Bischoff passed away on March 17, 2024. Thomas Bischoff, “habitat manicurist”, was an important partner of the land trust for decades, carrying out exceptional and creative meadow management and invasive plant control. No one knew our fields better. Using his own custom-made machines, his approach to detail is why they are in such good shape today. Tony Irving, LLT president said, “Over the years I had many conversations with Tom relating to the important management role he played. These were good talks that strayed into many areas, and it was always obvious that he had a great love for nature.” He was a great steward of our preserves and a beloved friend we will miss. To honor Tom, we have named the field in Jewett Preserve, the Tom Bischoff Meadow.  Read his full obituary here.
