On July 14, 2015, state officials, the Kestrel Land Trust, donors, supporters, and some Barstow’s gathered at the Skinner State Park Summit House to celebrate the preservation of 1,000 acres of land on the Mount Holyoke Range over the last two years, this in addition to the 10,000 acres already preserved.

Nestled right next to the Holyoke Range and having just preserved our farmland under the Agricultural Preservation Restriction, we also received our Forever Farmland sign at this event.

Thank you Rick Thayer for sharing this picture of David Barstow accepting the sign!
