Dedication of Brownell Preserve and Annual Meeting

On May 12, 2012 the Mattapoisett Land Trust dedicated the newly purchased Brownell preserve nestled between the Old Jenny Farm and Martocci parcels.

DSCF1654 300x225 Dedication of Brownell Preserve and Annual MeetingMLT President Gary P. Johnson conducted the dedication which was followed by a walk through the property to view its special features, including a large blueberry patch up for restoration, and a vernal pool in process for state certification. A large portion of this parcel has been marked by the state as critical wildlife habitat.

Brownell Dediction blue 231x300 Dedication of Brownell Preserve and Annual Meeting

Along with a map of the approximately 300 acres of almost entirely contiguous land in the Old Aucoot District, a handout included a list of the donors to date supporting restoration of the blueberry patch.

This dedication preceded the MLT annual meeting.

Those of you who couldn’t attend missed a pleasant walk but an even more interesting bat lecture. Who knew bats lived 20-30 years?

In addition to our returning board members, we had the nomination from the floor of Ray & Mary Ann Cebula who have been working as stewards on the Walega-Livingstone Preserve.
