The Bourne Conservation Trust (BCT) has purchased a one-acre building lot (Shultz Lot) at the corner of Scraggy Neck Extension and County Road in Cataumet. This property is on a well travelled access to Cataumet Village and will compliment the acre, Cobb Corner, already owned by the BCT on the opposite corner. The new parcel was recently cleared of thick underbrush, returning it to the primarily open condition enjoyed many years ago. In the fall, the BCT plans to seed the area in meadow grasses and wildflowers.
The first land purchased by the BCT was Lawrence Island in 1985 for $150,000. Enjoy the Lawrence Island slideshow. Photos may take a few seconds to load.
