This 80-acre parcel of forest, wetlands and farmland was acquired by the land trust in the spring of 2018. The protection of this land was made possible through a bequest of Eleanor Barlow and is now named the Eleanor F. & Edward W. Barlow Nature Preserve. This preserve has diverse habitat, including agricultural land, upland forest, and extensive freshwater wetlands adjacent to the state-owned, 111-acre Newton Swamp Management Area. In addition to a hayfield, the Barlow property has significant scenic, habitat, and recreational value with upland areas consisting of walking trails and overlooks.
Trails: This property has two trail systems: one located on the east side of the property and one on the west. Please visit the WLT trails app for trail maps and directions.
