Description: With the donation of a 4.52-acre conservation restriction (CR) to BLT, the Pogorelc family completed the protection of their family lands. The property, owned by the Orenda Wildlife Land Trust, is now doubly protected by the CR. Composed of freshwater wetlands and critical buffering upland, the land lies within the Sandy Neck/Barnstable Harbor Area of Critical Environmental Concern and abuts a Priority Habitat for Rare Species. It is also located within a Critical Natural Landscape area and the Old Kings Highway Regional Historic District. This follows an earlier gift of 7 acres north of the railroad tracks, land that protects the site of the historic West Barnstable Brick Company.
