Introducing Lone Pine Land Trust

On June 11, the board of directors and members of Lone Pine Marsh Sanctuary met at the Braham tract for a walk of the property (and introduction to new trails) followed by lunch, a special meeting, and the annual general meeting.

At the Special Meeting, new by-laws were passed (with amendments) and the name was officially changed to Lone Pine Land Trust. Since the addition of the Wilkinson, Kennedy, and Munn tracts to the original marsh (Braham tract), our land ownership in the watershed of Cold and Marsh Creeks has increased to a total of 371 acres. The addition of “Land Trust” to our name immediately tells people what our organization is about. To simplify the name, we dropped “Marsh Sanctuary” from the title; we will continue to focus on acquiring wetlands and lands adjacent to the creeks and be a sanctuary to the indigenous organisms of the area.
