Pozen Property: Cotuit Woodlands Protected Forever

4.07 Acres in Cotuit

Bob and Elizabeth Pozen have gifted a pair of two-acre parcels, totaling 4.07 acres, to Barnstable Land Trust. The Pozen property in Cotuit is composed of beautiful woodlands, located between scenic Rushy Marsh Pond to the east and Pinquickset Cove to the west. The two lots will now remain in their natural, undeveloped condition; the Town of Barnstable holds the conservation restriction, protecting the land in perpetuity.

Located within a buffer zone to a rare white cedar swamp, the land is considered ecologically sensitive and a critical natural resource. The property includes a potential vernal pool and is located within a Priority Habitat and a Significant Natural Resource Area as designated by Barnstable County.

The Pozens said they decided to preserve the land because they strongly believe it was the right thing to do for the community and for conservation.
