Greenbelt Celebrates the Opening of the Castle Neck River Reservation, Ipswich
More than 75 Greenbelt supporters gathered on a beautiful September evening to celebrate the official opening of Greenbelt's Castle Neck River Reservation in Ipswich. Welcoming remarks from President Kate Bowditch and the presentation of a citation from the Office of Senator Bruce Tarr were followed by a leisurely walk on the one-mile Greenough Trail. A huge thank you to Greenbelt's Land Stewardship staff who worked hard to get this property ready. Visit our website for a video and story map of this incredible new reservation.
