Double Your Gift to Conserve Kamon Farm! 
Greenbelt needs your help to conserve Kamon Farm, 93 acres with incredible conservation value in Ipswich. Click here to take a virtual walk at Kamon with Director of Land Conservation Chris LaPointe and learn how conserving this land will protect open space, drinking water, trails and farmland. A very generous donor has offered to match, dollar for dollar, up to $75,000 to protect this land, so your gift today will go twice as far! We've raised $25,000 of this match to date - please help us reach our goal. Thank you!
