You may have noticed signs such as these around town on various GLCT properties. The signs identify the dates that properties were protected. When there is a range of dates on the sign, that means the property was purchased in multiple phases over a number of years. GLCT turns 50 years old this year and the purpose of the sign campaign is to demonstrate our organization’s long standing commitment to protecting special properties all around town. We thank the many donors and volunteers who have made it all possible.
When we were working to preserve the Heart of Westwoods from 2012-2014, we indicated that that parcel was one of several privately owned Westwoods holdings which have been GLCT priorities for decades. We are very pleased to report that GLCT has secured a contract to buy another of these properties, 17.5 acres just north of our last Heart of Westwoods purchase. We’ve had the owners’ permission to maintain trails on this property for decades, so many of you have likely passed across this beautiful area on the White Circle or Red Triangle trails. It is quintessential Westwoods land, rugged, fascinating, and, with your help, protected.
Today we ask you to help us secure its permanent protection and to spread the word about this effort.
Unlike the last purchase, for which GLCT spread the payments out over 3 years, we must make the full $225,000 payment on or before March 27th. We need your generous support today.
GLCT has been able to protect 3,000 acres in Guilford – including more than 650 in Westwoods – because supporters like you value open space and generously respond to save critical parcels. Thank you for helping to protect this spectacular forest.
Please share this with three local, conservation-minded friends and connect to the story on Facebook.
GLCT is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year! Please mark your calendars for an outdoor celebration including local food, drinks, music and activities for GLCT supporters of all ages.
June 6th 2 – 5pm, Olmsted Outlook on River Street in Guilford.
