Saving Coldwater Farm

Conservation Easement Nearing Completion

Thanks to generous donors, the Coldwater Farm conservation easement is almost complete. During the spring we’ve had several guided bird walks to reward contributors. The walks were led by ornithologists Ryan Crouse and Carl Tomoff. A final walk, for contributors of $1,000 or more, is in two weeks. It will be led by field ornithologist Felipe Guerrero and will be followed by a picnic breakfast in the Farm’s bird garden. (Photo: Rare Black Hawk at Coldwater Farm, Copyright, 2019, Garry Rogers).

The conservation easement will protect the farm from all future development. We will continue to occupy our house and pay property taxes, but no other building will ever be permitted. !

  1. How refreshing – and it must be comforting to you – to know that the land will always be protected. I live in a protected forest that is not being protected and it’s saddening to witness the ongoing deforestation and pesticide use.

    I hope that many take note of what you have done, and that others make similar choices.

    Thank you for what you’re doing to your GPS point on the planet, and for inspiring others!
