A Grand new Property Protected

A beautiful, vibrant landscape will now be protected forever! 204 acre property is located in the Bethany Hills, an area where the Kawartha Land Trust is talking to landowners about their conservation and tax incentive options.

Imagine walking through a lush forest, with carpets of cohosh and baneberry spread out under large maples. As you turn to your right, you gaze through the trees and out over a pond and the deep Fleetwood Creek valley. In the far fields, Bobolinks, Meadowlarks and Barn Swallows thrive in and over the meadows — safe here now but declining and at risk across the province.
