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.”
