SVT has teamed up with the Town of Littleton and the Littleton Conservation Trust to purchase and protect Browns' Woods. The protection of the property will add a critical link in a corridor of conservation land that includes Prouty Woods, Long Lake, and the Littleton Town Forest. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has awarded a grant to the town that will provide well over half the funding required for the acquisition.
Thank you to Littleton voters, who overwhelmingly supported the purchase of Browns' Woods at a Special Town Meeting in the fall of 2020. The Town purchased the property in December 2020, the building on site was demolished in June, 2021, and once a parking area has been established we will be able to complete a conservation restriction (CR) for the property, which will be held by SVT. The CR provides an extra layer of protection to ensure that the land always stays undeveloped and available for passive recreation.
Our appreciation also goes to town leaders and staff for their hard work in putting the project together and to Littleton Conservation Trust for helping with outreach and for making a very generous $10,000 contribution to SVT's fundraising campaign.
