Community Conservation Partnerships: the Piscassic Greenway
The Southeast Land Trust works in partnership with communities to conserve significant lands and natural resources. This short video outlines the effort to conserve the 330-acre Piscassic Greenway in Newfields, once slated for a 102-lot subdivision. Alison Watts, Newfields resident and Conservation Commission member, explains how the town benefited from partnering with the Southeast Land Trust. The property was conserved in 2006 by the Town, Southeast Land Trust, and Trust for Public Land, and is now owned by the Southeast Land Trust subject to a conservation easement held by the Town of Newfields.
