Whitten Woods Update!
On October 28, 2015, SLCS, our conservation partners and campaign chair Barry Gaw announced the purchase of Whitten Woods from Bill and Nancy Dailey. Thanks to over 130 donors and broad community support this purchase marks the completion of the first phase of the project. Moving forward the New England Forestry Foundation will own the title and manage the timber resources, SLCS will hold a conservation easement to ensure the permanent protection of the land, and the Squam Lakes Association will hold a trail easement allowing for the design and maintenance of a universal public access trail system. If you haven’t already, it’s time to explore Whitten Woods!
“The Society’s mission is to preserve the unique quality and character of the Squam watershed by protecting lands for present and future generations.”
