Conservation Corridor Expands
In the northwest part of Upton, a town characterized by beautiful forests, SVT now holds a conservation restriction on the Bonner property. The CR was granted to us by Metacomet Land Trust, which was given the land for habitat protection and passive recreation.
Named for the late Dr. Barbara Bonner, founder of the Turtle Hospital of New England, the 70-acre parcel adjoins the Sweetwilliam Farm CR and Upton's Whitney Conservation Area on North Street and is part of an extensive corridor of protected land. Metacomet is building trails on the property that will be accessible from the Whitney Conservation Area trailhead.
