Dennis - Old Fort Field
(8 acres) This property, the site of a 1640s English fort, lies in the Chase Garden Creek watershed and connects to 75 acres of conserved land that is within both historic Dennis Village and the Old Kings Highway Regional Historic District. The parcel contains dense red cedar woodlands with mixed pine and oak as well as freshwater wetland extending into brackish marsh. Chase Garden Creek is the principle freshwater tributary to the downstream estuary, serving as a fish run and wildlife corridor. The Dennis Conservation Trust is purchasing the fee interest in the property and selling a conservation restriction to the town.
