THE PERRY CONSERVATION EASEMENT
In November of 2006, Elmer and Deborah Perry donated a conservation restriction on property adjacent to their Old Forge Hollow Road property in Litchfield. At 100 acres, the parcel represents the largest conservation restriction yet given to Warren Land Trust.
The property is forested land near Old Forge Road, to the west of the Shephaug Reservoir. The restriction is a particularly valuable gift because it extends the greenbelt represented by the reservoir land and makes both parcels more valuable by their combination, which benefits the entire watershed area.
The Warren Land Trust's certificate of incorporation permits the trust to hold conservation easements in towns abutting Warren. This was the first property not located in Warren to be placed under the protection of the Warren Land Trust.
