Explore the land

Anderson Woods

Purchased by COLF in 1998, the house on the property was sold and the remaining 10 acres were donated to CLCT in 1999. The property adjoins the Willow Guzzle town land on Sudbury Road. The acquisition of the Anderson Land was made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous donor and other gifts from CLCT members. Photo taken by: @bernadettethefashionette

Ferguson Land

The 5-acre Ferguson property was acquired in 1997, along with donated conservation restrictions on 6.7 abutting acres. The property links Garfield Road with the Town's Willow Guzzle Land. Photo taken by: @k.wilkinsonphotography

North Corner

A 5.6 acre woodland located at the intersection of Garfield and Sudbury Roads was purchased in 2015 thanks to the generous support of Land Trust members. It is directly adjacent to the trail on the Ferguson property.

Thornton Woods

This 4.2 acre parcel contains the trailhead on lower Garfield Road that links to Land Trust trails in Anderson Woods and, through the Town’s Willow Guzzle, with the Land Trust’s Ferguson Land and Miller Farm properties. The land was acquired in the spring of 2008.

Hutchins Land

The 16.5 acre Hutchins property was purchased from the heirs of Gordon Hutchins by CLCT in 1971. The property is located in the Estabrook Woods along Two Rod Road north of Punkatasset
Hill. Two Rod Road also connects to the Gifford Land, 15 acres of fields and woods that were donated to CLCT by Chandler and Barbara Gifford and their son and his wife, Peter and Holly Gifford, in 2003, 2004 and 2012.
