Greenbelt is committed to the sustained focus it takes to conserve our region’s treasured landscapes, vulnerable farmland and natural habitats. These protected places help define Essex
County’s unique character and quality of life.
Last year, Greenbelt helped Topsfield residents protect Donibristle Farm, a heritage
landscape rich in wildlife and popular for its trails. Our Conservation Chronicle illustrates how Greenbelt, community members, willing landowners, and a state conservation partner
worked together to permanently protect 44 acres of cherished land for public access and enjoyment.
We can’t do this alone. Your support of our Annual Fund helps us protect more land. The Donibristle project demonstrates your annual investment at work, enabling Greenbelt staff to
establish relationships, help landowners and community members realize their conservation vision, and steward the property once it’s protected.
Greenbelt is grateful to several professional and staff photographers whose work is featured prominently within our website.
Thank you Jerry Monkman / ecophotography.com, Lynne Holton, Kindra Clineff, Adrian Scholes and John Raleigh.
