On April 26, 2017 voters approved the Community Preservation Committee’s grant of $200,000 to the Truro Conservation Trust toward the purchase and preservation of the 10 acre Upland Twine Field Meadow (a rare and historic habitat) on the Roger’s property on Pond Road. If secured, the Twine Field would connect to current preservation land behind Pond Road, extending to Route 6A, and become a large corridor and safe refuge for plants and animals. Truro would remain the most rural town on the Cape.
An energetic effort by local community members has been underway for months to try to collect funds to buy the Roger’s property for the preservation of this rare ecosystem. www.trurotwinefield.com
Pond Road (including the Twine Field) and Pond Village are eligible for listing as a National Register Historic District. The Chapel On The Pond (1915) has also been contacted for this National honor.
The first wildfowl of Spring were spotted by this photographer enjoying a (rare) sunny day beside Pilgrim Pond, (May 8) and meandering through the garden at The Chapel On The Pond. (May 23).
