Read Conservation Easement

Some great news out of Peterborough – The Conservancy has accepted the donation of a conservation easement on 92 acres of forests and wetlands! Thanks to Peter and Suzanne Read for donating this easement, which allows us to add the land to a block of previously conserved land totaling 399 acres. Large, contiguous blocks of conserved land are especially valuable for carbon storage and for enabling wildlife to adapt to climate change.

Special bonus: Our staff has observed as many as nine active great blue heron nests on the property (look closely at the picture to your right), proof positive that our feathered friends will appreciate this news as much as you do.
