Preservation of the Old Boston Land.
Join us on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 2:30 PM for a Zoom session about an important conservation effort: preservation of the Old Boston Land.
Ogunquit and the Great Works Regional Land Trust have a one-time opportunity on November 3rd to protect the Old Boston Land on North Village Road. At 157 acres this is the largest remaining undeveloped property in the town with over 2000 feet of frontage on the Ogunquit River. Its woodlands, wetlands, historic foundations and cemetery would provide for outdoor recreation and protect water quality. It connects with 6000 acres of conservation lands stretching to Mt Agamenticus. Tin Smith, Great Works Regional Land Trust Board member, will talk about this exciting project and answer questions.
We hope to see you there on Zoom!
