In the last six months, our multi-tasking staff and board have been busy continuing to acquire and protect critical open space and habitat in the watershed. We currently have over $20 million worth of real estate in various phases of acquisition representing over 700 acres of future permanent preserved lands – see page 2 of this newsletter for exciting updates on University Heights!
