Fee Acquisition with Restoration or Enhancement
Project Description: 
This project prevents the development of at least four house lots on 31 acres in the center of Blandings and spotted turtle habitat in the Tatnic region of the Mt Agamenticus state focus area through fee acquisition. The parcel contains wetlands, vernal pools and uplands and is adjacent to 171 acres of protected land and within two miles of 533 additional conserved acres. One of the wetlands will be restored through the removal of road sediment and gravel and the site stabilized to prevent reoccurrence.
