We are proud to announce the completion of our newest land conservation project. Edward (“Ned”) Goodnow, a longtime resident of New Marlborough, has given 300 acres of iconic land along the Konkapot River to the Land Trust. The acreage is located just south of Mill River, one of New Marlborough’s five villages. The property has historical, recreational and agricultural significance containing more than 4,000 feet of river frontage, the ruins of a paper mill, woodland trails, and open pasture.
This is Ned Goodnow's gift to the entire community. Ned protected the property with a conservation restriction in 2007 held by the Trustees of Reservations. The New Marlborough Land Trust is proud to inherit the stewardship of this land. The land offers pristine wildlife habitats as well as recreational, educational and agricultural opportunites for the public to enjoy into the future.
