STAMFORD — The Stamford Land Conservation Trust acquired its 57th property, a 1.2-acre open-space parcel at the intersection of Mill and Rock Rimmon roads in North Stamford. The parcel was donated by Jack Truman, on behalf of Mill Rd LLC.
“The Stamford Land Conservation Trust is thrilled to bring this beautiful meadow-like parcel into its portfolio of stewarded land in Stamford,” said Harry Day, president of SLCT. “The parcel contains wetlands that are a perfect habitat for birds and other native species. A benefit to placing the acreage under SLCT stewardship is that it ensures the acreage will be protected as open space in perpetuity.”
The Trust was founded in 1972 to preserve the benefits of open space in Stamford by acquiring and managing land preserves throughout the city. The SLCT currently protects over 57 preserves comprising over 450 acres. For more information on the SLCT, visit stamfordland.org.
