Doherty_3463_3001.47 Acres in Centerville – December 30, 2015

Barnstable Land Trust received a gift of 3 parcels of land, totaling 1.47 acres, from the Doherty family. Located on Katherine Road in Centerville, the land is a mix of upland and wetlands, and lies within State Designated Priority Habitat for rare species and State Designated Critical Natural Landscape. The wetlands are part of a nearly 10-acre wetland system that is the headwaters of the Centerville River, a major wetland corridor in the Town. As a result, a wide array of species will benefit from the protection of this land.
