THE DOROTHY MAIER PRESERVE

On September 25, 2001 the Warren Land Trust received a gift of 32.4 acres on Sackett Hill Road which would, in future years, become known as The Dorothy Maier preserve.

The property had previously been owned by the Kennedy and Lyons families. It was subsequently purchased by neighbors Jeffrey Horowitz, Karen and Tucker Anderson, and former Warren Land Trust board member David Scofield. This generous group then donated it to the Warren Land Trust.

The property is across the street from the Warren Elementary School, and was the location of the land trust’s first trails. The preserve was been named in honor of Dorothy Maier, in gratitude for her years of service to the Warren Land Trust. Dorothy was the Warren Land Trust’s first president, serving in that capacity for fifteen years from 1989 until 2005. Plans are underway to expand this trail and install a bench at its high point.
