Description: Phase 2 of the “Save Bayview Farm” initiative protected 9.65 acres of open fields and wetlands that abut the Town’s Bridge Creek Conservation Area. This purchase, together with the purchase of BLT #100, made BLT the steward of 24 connected acres. The land provides a critical link between the 300-acre Bridge Creek Conservation Area and the 9,125-acre Sandy Neck/Barnstable Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). Support came from The Nature Conservancy, the Mass Department of Conservation and Recreation (MDCR) and the Town’s Community Preservation Act (CPA), together with many individuals and local businesses. MDCR holds a conservation restriction on this land to ensure its permanent protection.
