Woodhaven Farm Project Receives State Grant

SVT and the Carlisle Conservation Foundation are thrilled to announce that they have received an $85,000 Conservation Partnership grant towards the acquisition of a conservation restriction (CR) on Woodhaven Farm in Carlisle. This represents a huge first step in a $400,000 fundraising effort to protect the Prospect Street property, which consists of 28 acres of land adjacent to Estabrook Woods in the south part of Carlisle. The owners of neighboring Sweet Autumn Farm have proposed to purchase Woodhaven Farm and to convey a CR to SVT and CCF.  Read more about Woodhaven Farm here or join us on a walk of the property on February 13 or February 28 to learn more.

Preserving Mainstone Farm in Wayland

Mainstone Farm is the largest remaining piece of undeveloped, unprotected open space in Wayland and one of the few of its size in the region. Well known and loved by residents for its bucolic, rolling pastures and wooded hillsides, it has long been a priority for protection by the Town of Wayland and SVT. At Town Meeting in early April 2016, Wayland residents will have the opportunity to secure the permanent protection of Mainstone Farm by approving the appropriation of funds to acquire a Conservation Restriction (CR) on 200 acres of the property. Learn more about the effort to Protect Mainstone Farm.
