Quabbin-to-Cardigan Partnership continues preservation efforts
“We’re building off the base of many, many years of work,” he said.
The parcels range in size from a few acres to over 1,000 acres, and each one is important to the Q2C mission, said Wells. In the last decade the Q2C Partnership has preserved over 90,000 acres in the corridor.
One of those puzzle pieces the partnership is currently working on putting under an easement is a 60-acre parcel of land in Temple owned by the Connolly Brothers Dairy Farm. According to Brian Hotz, vice president of land protection for the Forest Society, the Connollys have agreed to sell rights to the land, valued at $530,000, for $405,000 in order to ensure it’s protected for future generations.
