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.
This year, Greenbelt helped forever protect Castle Neck River Reservation.
Conserving this natural and agricultural resource in Ipswich had been a priority for decades. Our Conservation Chronicle details how our collaboration with the Town of Ipswich and the Mass.
Division of Fisheries and Wildlife preserved wide swaths of prime farmland, wooded upland and trails.
We can’t do this alone. Your support of our Annual Fund helps us protect more land. The Castle Neck River 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.
