Description: The heirs of Elizabeth Fisher placed a “post-mortem” conservation restriction on a 1.93-acre portion of their family land in memory of their mother. Along its northern edge, the parcel abuts the Wianno Golf Course. This gift was the beginning of BLT’s Wianno Project, which would ultimately protect 13.42 acres along scenic Sea View Avenue in Osterville. [See BLT #72, #77, #83] In 2012, the family donated the fee interest in the land and BLT transferred the conservation restriction to The Compact of Cape Cod Conservation Trusts.
