Hopkinton's Whitehall Woods Becomes Newest SVT Reservation
On October 18, SVT acquired a 32-acre property in Hopkinton and announced our newest reservation: Whitehall Woods. We are thrilled to protect this land, which is located on Pond Street, across from Whitehall State Park; it also connects to the Upton State Forest.
We began working on this project over two years ago, when we collaborated with the Whitehall Woods Alliance to protect this natural area. Ten acres of the land were sold to a developer, but SVT received the remaining 32 acres as a condition of the development permit.
Our Stewardship team has plans to improve the existing trails and provide an improved access to Upton State Forest. Look for the announcement of an official opening in Spring 2017.
We hope you will enjoy this beautiful woodland!
