Description: Three neighbors – Paul and Jill Kaneb, Richard and Nancy Leghorn, Alan and Diane Bankhart – purchased the land and then donated a conservation restriction on a 1.49-acre wooded lot. The lot is located on a peninsula within 500 feet of both West Bay and Eel River. The donors’ action underscores their shared belief in the importance of having some preserved open space in order to help balance growth and preserve the quality of the coastal waters. In 2013 BLT took ownership of the land and transferred the conservation restriction to The Compact of Cape Cod Conservation Trusts.

Habitat: Pine and oak woodlands
Parcel ID: Town of Barnstable Assessor’s #114002
