Donated Salt Marsh
Located south of Stackyard Road, the 16-acre Greenbelt acquisition adds to the nearly 1,500 acres of protected marsh, which contributes to the health and resilience of the Great Marsh. Healthy, intact salt marshes protect against coastal erosion and flooding, and they are nurseries for important marine species. We’re grateful for the generosity of Jay and Elise Stanbury.

Congrats, Rachel!

Our Development Manager, Rachel Horgan, recently finished first in the Lake Willoughby 5-mile swim, part of the Swim the Kingdom Week in Vermont. Congrats Rachel!
