Last Remaining Parcel on Great Cove Preserved

1.42 acres in Osterville – December 12, 2012

In early winter 2012, Mrs. Rachel Mellon donated 1.42 acres of coastal wetland on Great Cove. The land is composed of coastal wetlands fringed by upland. Acquisition of this special property completes the preservation of the shoreline around Great Cove on the Grand Island of Osterville and is part of a larger greenbelt that extends to BLT’s 13-acre Grand Island Preserve acquired in 1993.

BLT is grateful to Mrs. Mellon for this special gift, which further enhances scenic character and protects the fragile coastal environment.
