The Trust has always contributed significantly to the conservation of the island’s rich bio-diversity and continues in spite of the ravages of the volcano and limited resources to make a valiant effort to maintain the environment. Over the years the Trust has been able to restore and manage several historic and natural sites on Montserrat. These included the Bransby Point, Galway’s Plantation, Fox’s Bay Bird Sanctuary and Woodland’s Beach House. It also managed a small museum in a Sugar Mill on Richmond Hill. All of these areas, except the Woodland’s Beach House have been destroyed by the erupting volcano. The Sugar Mill still stands but is in the exclusion zone. Fortunately, however members of the Trust were able to remove the valuable documents and artefacts, which were displayed in the old Sugar Mill. Some of theses artefacts were sent abroad for keeping and others are housed at the present headquarters of the Trust, but under less than ideal conditions and the rest are sometimes on display in the History Centre to show the history of the island from before Christopher Columbus to present day.
