UPDATE ON THE POTENTIAL PURCHASE OF 64 ACRES ADJACENT TO THE ALTSCHUL PRESERVE
Dear Members and Friends:
You may have heard about a wonderful opportunity the Stamford Land Conservation Trust has been offered to purchase 64 acres from the Altschul family for approximately $3M.
The Land Trust board has received significant commitments toward the $3M purchase price but still needs $550K to close the gap, which would be $1M higher if not for the generosity of the owners, who are selling below market value.
The 65 acres, located on Den and Riverbank Road, are adjacent to the 164-acre Helen Altschul preserve — the Land Trust’s crown jewel and largest preserve. Acquisition of the 65 acres would create a combined open space domain of 245 acres — an important and most worthy achievement for the surrounding neighborhoods, as well as for the City of Stamford and our citizens.
The Land Trust is continuing to work with donors to raise the necessary additional funds.
If you have questions or would like to make a donation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Donate button below.
