Update: Protecting Horse Meadows Knoll in Harvard
SVT and Harvard Conservation Trust (HCT) have teamed up to protect Horse Meadows Knoll on Sherry Road. Overlooking the scenic Horse Meadows Reservoir, this forested land is traversed by a meandering stream and is home to an abundance of wildlife, including three rare species: Blanding’s turtle, eastern box turtle, and blue-spotted salamander.
With the addition of a small parking area and some trail improvements, SVT plans to turn this 45-acre property into a delightful place to hike, snowshoe, watch birds, or ride horses.
SVT has committed to raising $285,000 by September 2018 for this project; to date, we have raised $153,000.
Update, January 25, 2018: In mid-January, we received a large grant from a private foundation. Thanks to this grant and several other grants, along with contributions from private individuals, we have now raised more than $230,000 for the Horse Meadows Knoll project. Just $53,000 more to go. Please help protect this beautiful landscape.
