Franklin Preserve Grows through Donation of 26 acres
Victor and Ruth McElheny have generously donated 26 acres of forest & wetlands to SELT. In addition to being an important property for clean water protection, this property is an addition to SELT’s abutting 47-acre Franklin Preserve, and once provided water to the nearby Three Rivers Farm.
Stay tuned - we are working to bring you a trail network with maps and kiosks later this year!
Just $75,000 Remains to Conserve Bodwell Farm
Happy cows, lush pastures, a local family farm. Bodwell Farm in Kensington is the quintessential New England dairy farm. After completing the first phase of this project in 2016, SELT is on track to complete a second easement on 212 acres this year. With just $75,000 left to raise, we are asking area residents to contribute and close the gap.
