In late December 2020, Bill and Martha Cooper donated 2.5 acres of land in northwest Sudbury to SVT. This property and SVT's adjacent Bracket-Leland-Benedict property are part of an Atlantic white cedar swamp that forms the headwaters of a tributary of the Assabet River. (Because these properties are primarily wetland, they do not have public trails.)

We are grateful to the Coopers for this generous gift and for helping to protect an unusual habitat that is considered to be imperiled in Massachusetts.
