The Shirley Heinze
Land Trust is announcing a donation of 3.03 acres of wetlands in Beverly
Shores from the Brandstetter Family.
The donation is
comprised of 14 lots adjacent to existing Shirley Heinze holdings.
“We have been
working to protect these wetlands for the last 30 years,” Executive Director
Kristopher Krouse said. “We are grateful to the Brandstetter family and to
Tyson Lagoni, a local volunteer whose efforts have aided in this work.”
“The history of
piecing together the Shirley Heinze Great Marsh Preserve is a great story of
patience and perseverance,” Lagoni said. “These protected 85 acres (along
with the rest of Heinze’s 2,400 protected acres) have preserved valuable
habitat for our local wildlife and the open spaces that give Duneland
residents pride in our unique sense of place.”
