Description

When the property was purchased in 1970, many of the fields were overgrown. Through clearing and caring for the land, these fields have been restored to be a mixture of agricultural grassland, sandplain grassland and coastal heathland habitats. They are home to at least six plant species that are listed as either Threatened, Endangered or of Special Concern in Massachusetts. SMF now manages these areas through a combination of haying, mowing and prescribed fire.
