Scituate-Bates Lane Conservation
(54 acres) This project includes multiple parcels in the Bates Lane Conservation Area and contains a mix of wooded upland, wetlands, stream frontage, vernal pools and Natural Heritage and Endangered Species Program Priority Habitat. Protection will connect adjacent conservation parcels, protect an existing trail network, and improve access. The property will be open to the public for hiking, horseback riding, skiing, biking, and hunting. The local Maxwell Conservation Trust will hold the conservation restriction.
