Preserving Grafton’s open space

I’ve had “write about the Grafton Land Trust” on my to-do list for a while now. It’s celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and has managed to preserve 620 acres to keep Grafton the way we’ve all found and loved it — rural, woody and picturesque.

And yeah, I live in a new development that destroyed acres of woodlands. We all have our hypocrisies to bear.

In any case, I do intend to write about them, even more than I’m writing about them now, but today I just want to point you to a fantastic article in the Telegram by Donna Boynton that details the group’s history and efforts, alongside a graphic I’d dearly love to poach… but my paper’s designer is a total goddess who would smite me if I dared to violate another paper’s copyright in that manner.

Thanks for the tip, Michael!

  1. I know this blog entry is from July, but I figured I’d send an update regarding GLT activities anyway. The GLT is having a photo contest…
