Preserving Our Legacy - A Benefit for the Farmington Land Trust
The Farmington Land Trust's 'Preserving our Legacy' Gala was held on November 6th, 2014 at the Farmington Country Club in Farmington.
Description: The Farmington Land Trust, founded by Jack Emery in 1971, has been central to the preservation of the natural resources of Farmington. The organization, from its earliest days, led the effort to protect the open lands along the Farmington River resulting in the preservation of the Meadows and the Canal Aqueduct. Jack, along with our first executive director, Dick Noyes, built the Land Trust into one of the preeminent conservancies in New England. The Land Trust now protects hundreds of acres of open space and has been instrumental in the Town’s acquisition of many hundreds more. It has done much to promote its mission to protect open space in perpetuity through acquisition, stewardship, education and advocacy.
