Westport Land Conservation Trust (WLCT) thanks the Massachusetts Waterfowlers, Inc. for their on-going partnership to preserve and steward land in Westport. The Mass Waterfowlers’ financial support enabled WLCT to purchase 3 parcels of land this year, totaling 46 acres. These purchases include 9.4 acres of rare species habitat that will expand trails at Westport Woods and a forested 26-acre parcel off Division Road that includes red maple swamp, wetlands, and the headwaters of Wings Brook. This parcel significantly expands a key green corridor of East Branch watershed.

“The Waterfowlers actively work to protect and steward wild places for future generations of sporting men and women. We’re pleased to work with the Land Trust to preserve these habitats.”
