The 15-Acre Creed property on Orchard Street is a beautiful, expansive property providing both high-quality habitat and a stretch of intact marsh and upland critically important for climate change resiliency as sea levels rise. There are many native plants on the land.
Their conservation adds to 66 nearby acres Greenbelt has already preserved.
The Creed acquisition will allow Greenbelt to create a new reservation, and we look forward to creating a footpath passing through open fields and leading to a scenic overlook of the Parker River.
Private fundraising supported the conservation of this property, and preserves the historic, scenic landscape of this part of Byfield – scenery that has remained largely unchanged for well over a century.
Greenbelt will manage the land for conservation and passive recreational purposes.
Greenbelt is grateful to several professional and staff photographers whose work is featured prominently within our website.
