ECOLOGICAL GIFT NUMBER  

We are delighted to announce the acquisition of a fifth property: a 17 acre wooded wetland just south of Grafton. A recent visit showed that in spring there are many vernal pools in the woods, and it sounded as if a large percentage of them had wood frogs present.

In the wet conditions, white cedar, yellow birch and red maple dominate the forest, and although a small amount of dog-strangling vine can be found along the roadside edges, the interior of the woods seems to be free of this scourge.

We wish to thank Rick Roberts, Scott MacDonald and Bill Coombs for their generous donation of this property. We will be working on a management plan to guide us in our care of this delightful woodland, and we celebrated its grand opening in September 2015.
