Help Expand Indian Hill Conservation Area with the 25-acre Colby Property
Greenbelt has the opportunity to expand our Indian Hill Conservation Area - an existing 315-acre network of protected open space and public trails in West Newbury - by preserving the
Colby property, 25 acres of scenic fields and critical watershed land bordering the Upper Artichoke Reservoir.
The Colby property lies in the midst of adjacent, permanently protected land owned by Greenbelt and is a missing link in the ribbon of open space winding around the Indian Hill and the Upper
Greenbelt has an agreement to purchase the property for the appraised value of $115,000.
The property would be preserved in perpetuity as conservation land, offering a meaningful expansion of an actively-used trail network for public access and permanent protection of open space
bordering directly on an important drinking water resource.
Conserving this land will:
Expand the Indian Hill Conservation Area, an actively-used, publicly-accessible trail network;
Permanently protect open space bordering directly on an important drinking water resource; and
Greenbelt is grateful to several professional and staff photographers whose work is featured prominently within our website.
