Past Projects

Huckabee Farm

Ice-skating on Huckabee's farm pond was an Amherst tradition for many years, and Margery Huckabee wanted to preserve her family's land for future generations to enjoy. With the help of the Amherst Land Trust, she was able to obtain the funds she needed to secure her situation while protecting most of the land.

Lindabury Orchard (right)

A prime parcel with a lovely view, this piece provides permanent open space in the northwest corner of town. The Friends of the Orchard maintain the land and have established a tradition of community gathering and celebration centered on the orchard, a legacy of Amherst's rural heritage.

Wetland Wildlife Reserve (Post Road Lands)

This property was gifted to the Land Trust.

Brine Forest

An unusual experiment in preservation, this donation is intended to become a "new" old-growth forest.

Trow Mill

This Mont Vernon property preserves a piece of the historical heritage of the Souhegan Valley.
