Help Us Expand Upton's Peppercorn Hill Conservation Area

The view from atop the Kelly Property

SVT is collaborating with Metacomet Land Trust and the Town of Upton to protect the 66-acre Kelly Property that sits within Upton’s Peppercorn Hill Conservation Area.

A popular hiking trail crosses the Kelly Property and extends onto other conservation lands owned by the Towns of Upton, Hopkinton, and Milford. The land is dotted with rocky outcrops, wetlands, and habitat for rare plant species.

We want to permanently protect these ecological features, close a gap in the Conservation Area, and ensure the public always has access to the trail.

SVT must raise $73,000 to assist MLT in its purchase of 23 acres of this land. We've received $45,000 from a foundation grant, and we are seeking the public's support in raising the remaining $28,000.
