Brownell Preserve to re-open

Bobbe Stultz, executive member of the Lewisboro Land Trust, said the LLT is excited to announce the re-opening and renovation of the Brownell Preserve in Goldens Bridge.

“This is a beautiful wilderness preserve with over two miles of cleared trails, water crossings and the very interesting maple syrup harvesting operation of Crown Maple. Over the past year, the Lewisboro Land Trust has refurbished the preserve with the help of a private donor,” Stultz said. “The town has added a parking area with parking for about six cars.”

On Sunday, June 5, participants will meet at Fox Valley Park (off Route 138 in Indian Hill) in Goldens Bridge at 11 a.m. for bus transportation to the preserve, as there will be no parking directly at the preserve that day due to limited space. Stultz said supervisor Peter Parsons will be one of the drivers and that Town Board member John Pappalardo will perform the ribbon-cutting ceremony. She also said that  naturalist Jim Nordgren will lead a 90-minute hike of the preserve.

The Brownell Preserve was donated to the town in 1984 by Katharine and George Brownell. It was the first preserve in Lewisboro owned by the Town.

“We hope all members of the community will come to see and enjoy this town gem on June 5, and thereafter,” Stultz said.
