Description: A portion of this important forested land lies within State Designated Priority Habitat for rare species. It is also part of a greenbelt that includes the Barnstable County Farm just over 500 feet away. The groundwater beneath the land feeds a nearby wetland and flows toward Maraspin Creek, which feeds Barnstable Harbor and the Sandy Neck Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), a major focus area for BLT. The topography suggests that a vernal pool may also be located on the land.
