Mass Audubon has an opportunity to protect 67 stunning, hilltop acres adjacent to High Ledges Wildlife Sanctuary in Shelburne Falls. But to make it happen, we need your help to raise $430,000 by June 2020.
The generous support of many individuals helped protect 167 acres of the Patten Hill property in 2016. Today, we need your help to permanently conserve the rest of the farm and preserve the legacy of open space for future generations.
This spectacular property boasts views of the mountains in all directions—Mount Greylock to the west, Mount Monadnock to the east, Mount Tom to the south, and the Green Mountains of Vermont to the north.
Protecting this property will result in more than 1,000 connected, protected acres. In addition to the long-distance views, it contains important grassland bird habitat, forest and a stream corridor that includes a series of beaver ponds.
The parcel will connect the 792-acre High Ledges with the undeveloped 574-acre Shelburne Falls Fire District land (a public water supply property) and the 221-acre Davenport Farm, creating the type of wildlife corridor that is essential to accommodating wildlife movement in the age of climate change.
We can't do this without you! In order to make this happen, we must raise $430,000 by June 2020.
Please help protect this land by making a gift today.
