Additional Progress on Berkshires Project

Bob Wilber, Director of Land Protection

Working in partnership with the State Department of Conservation & Recreation and the Berkshire Natural Resources Council, we continue to make progress toward a long-held goal of conserving large portions of a spectacular 1,300-acre property abutting Mount Greylock in the Berkshires.

While there are many complex issues yet to be addressed before we are assured that this is “a go”, recent progress has been steady, as we continue to work with the conservation-minded owners of this land.  Reflecting the importance of this opportunity, we have been awarded a large state grant – provided that we get the project to the finish line this Spring.  In the coming months we will be trying to identify where the additional funds necessary will come from. Optimistic….but with fingers crossed!
