Conserve the Valley You Love
19 Towns. One Valley.
Kestrel Land Trust is dedicated to conserving the land that sustains the quality of life and ecological integrity of the Connecticut River Valley.
Another 336 Acres Protected on the Range
In partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and the Department of Fish and Game (DFG), Kestrel has taken another step toward our ambitious goal of protecting the Mount Holyoke Range with the permanent conservation of 336 acres of forestland and wetlands. 243 acres across eleven parcels are now conserved in Granby and Hadley as additions to the Mount Holyoke Range State Park. Two other parcels in Granby and Belchertown totaling 93 acres will be owned by Kestrel with a Conservation Restriction held by DFG.
