The Roxbury Land Trust has experienced an active summer.

During its annual meeting, recent Shepaug Valley High School graduate Nate Steers presented the organization with a check for $500, which represented proceeds from his senior project at the school.

Nate produced maple syrup and packaged it with an information label to increase community awareness of the work of the land trust.

In other news, the trust's Mine Hill Preserve benefited from two Eagle Scout/Troop 65 projects.

Sean Irwin designed and built a shed to protect the historic tumbler, and Nate Steers installed sign posts indicating the location of nine buildings that existed during the 19th century, when Mine Hill was an active iron ore mining site.

Directors were also elected at the meeting.

Richard Frank, retiring director, was thanked for his 12 years of service.

Michael Boyd, Edgar Racz, John Yarbrough Jr., Alison Lundie, Matthew Root, William Steers Jr., Barbara Ungeheuer and Ann Wescott were elected to the class of 2017.
