Description: The Bilezikian family donated 4.5 acres of salt marsh in memory of Charles G. Bilezikian. Located on picturesque Mill Creek in Cummaquid, this special land provides strong habitat value. It is part of a much larger resource area recognized for rare species and unique habitats – the Sandy Neck/Barnstable Harbor Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), which supports a variety of wildlife such as coastal shorebirds, otter, deer, rabbits, raccoons and opossums. The land expands an existing sanctuary on the other side of a small brook, which includes a 1.43-acre parcel of land donated to BLT in 2010 [#126] and 10 acres of salt marsh, owned by Mass Audubon off nearby Stoney Cove Lane.
