In January 2001, the KLCT purchased the Pond Meadow Natural Area, AKA the Cranberry Bog.
Through the generosity of our townspeople, agencies, clubs, government, and other outside organizations and individuals, we not only raised the money to purchase the bog, but have created an endowment fund for its upkeep and a buffer fund to purchase the surrounding open space should it become available. We started with 19 acres and it’s now up to 42. The Pond Meadow Natural Area Committee was formed to restore and maintain the habitat and to facilitate the use of the area for research and public programs. While to protect the rare plants we have had to make it off limits to individuals, regular guided tours are offered, along with our annual autumn cranberry harvest for our members and residents.
