Description: Tom and Irene Ankowiak preserved a 1-acre oasis for wildflowers, grasses, birds and butterflies. The Ankowiaks had once considered selling the meadow; however, neighbors who walked by and watched it change with the seasons appealed to their love of the land and instead a gift was made to BLT. Although the animals that once grazed the land on Swift Avenue in Osterville are long gone, the meadow and its wildlife will remain forever wild.

Habitat: Open meadow
Parcel ID: Town of Barnstable Assessor’s #165038
