Spring is the season of hope and renewal and this Earth Day's theme asks us to make an investment in our planet. I'm asking you to help the Metacomet Land Trust do precisely that by replenishing our special Land Preservation Fund so we can continue our land preservation work and surpass the milestone of preserving 1,000 acres!
This fund was created with a bequest from Allan Shaw of Norfolk. Allan was a Metacomet Board member, a long time member of Norfolk's Conservation Commission and an ardent environmentalist. Our Land Preservation Fund is specifically designated to cover the due diligence costs needed to complete land preservation transactions. Out-of-pocket costs include attorney's fees (that we are fortunate to have deeply discounted), surveys, title searches, environmental contamination assessments and recording fees.
