It's official! On October 16, TLT closed on the F&J Realty property, two parcels totaling 60± acres on Pocasset Ridge. Trish Sylvester, chair of TLT's Land Protection Committee, was instrumental in finalizing this transaction. F&J Realty is held by 10 members of the Matta family, the former owners of Pardon Gray Preserve. The F&J parcel contains part of Borden Brook and existing trails through rugged terrain leading to historic cellar holes. It is strategic in breaking up the tract of unprotected land east of 8 Rod Way to make the remaining parcels less attractive for development. Thanks to the Bafflin Foundation and The Nature Conservancy for their major financial support. We still have a significant funding gap, however, and need to replenish TLT's Land Acquisition Fund before we can purchase another available parcel on Pocasset Ridge. Please help with the Pocasset Ridge Campaign if you can, donate here.
