Among the first properties acquired by CLCT, Wright Woods links Walden Pond Reservation with the Sudbury River and a well site of the Town of Concord. It abuts land owned by the Walden Woods Project. Initially consisting of gifts by Helen Wright beginning in 1959 and eventually aggregating some 239 acres, the property has been augmented over the years by additional gifts in the Fairhaven Hill area from Henry Seton, Eric Parkman Smith, Mary S. Thompson, and Eunice Knight. Today, Wright Woods and neighboring parcels total approximately 303 acres, chiefly woodland.

Scout Island

This island in Fairhaven Bay was a gift of Edwin D. Brooks, Jr. in 1981. The property consists of 2.7 acres and is accessible only by boat. It is contiguous with 9.6 acres of upland woods donated to CLCT by Barbara and William Schevill in 1990.

Seton Woods

Adjacent to the Wright Woods parcel donated by her father, this 33 acre property was donated to CLCT in 2014 by Mary Seton Abele, who lived on Fairhaven Hill for most of her childhood and wanted others to enjoy the open space she explored growing up.
