Accepting gifts of land can be more time consuming than one might think. There are many things to consider before taking on a property, especially on a place like Cuttyhunk with its long history of varied human uses including military, agriculture, and tourism. Similar to buying a house, we have to consider all sorts of issues to make sure we understand the property we are about to own.

For example, we have to consider if there are any safety concerns on the property and if there is clear title to the land meaning no risk of disputed ownership among other things. That all aside, we have worked on some wonderful properties so far and there are more to come. Next on the list is a high point on the island with one of the best views of Buzzards Bay that one could hope to find. More trips to the island by this Mass Audubon Land Protection Specialist will likely be necessary, hopefully in summer, because fortunately someone has to do it!
This large-scale project seeks to conserve the spectacular Bear Hole Landscape.

That extensive, intact, forested area was acquired by the City of West Springfield over the last century as a surface water supply. When the City went to a groundwater well system to fulfill their municipal water needs in recent decades, the future of the land was brought into question because it was no longer needed for the purpose for which it had been acquired. In recent years, Mass Audubon and DCR have had the good fortune of working with two forward-thinking mayors of West Springfield — mayors who have embraced the vision of placing permanent protections on Bear Hole. In that future, the conserved landscape would be managed for powerful climate change response, as well as increased and enhanced low impact public use and enjoyment.
West Springfield is to be commended for recently taking steps necessary to become one of the first municipalities to monetize the carbon sequestration services of their forests — opening up exciting reinvestment potential for the Bear Hole Landscape. While there are a number of important milestones still ahead of us, we remain optimistic that the exciting opportunity to permanently protect Bear Hole will be fulfilled. Mass Audubon often needs to move quickly in order to protect a critical piece of property.
Even when we do have the luxury of time, local or place-based fundraising may not be sufficient to raise all the funds needed. For these situations we created the Land Conservation Fund. Gifts to this fund are used to:. The conservation impact of these funds cannot be overstated. In many cases, they simply make the protection of important land possible.
For example, fundraising can be particularly challenging in the western part of the state, where there is lots of important land to be protected, but fewer people to fund its conservation. This financial resource enables us to be more nimble, proactive, and employ a visionary statewide approach. Your gift to the Land Conservation Fund empowers us to pursue and complete projects for climate change response — helping both people and nature be more resilient in the years ahead. This land was owned since by the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts. Two years ago they decided to sell it.
Somewhat amazingly, there were 90 acres of pre-existing Mass Audubon land located on two sides of this spectacular coastal tract. The purchase of that CR at that time did two things — one positive, one less so — it permanently and significantly reduced the value of the land but also left fifteen acres of the land totally unprotected.
It is a safe statement that few of those involved at the time expected that opportunity to ever become real. For us to acquire the land and convert it to the Great Neck Wildlife Sanctuary, many additional costs would be incurred, including demolishing many of the buildings on the site, restoring the landscape, committing a staff presence, and expanding the trail network and other sanctuary start-up activities.
While certainly daunted by the magnitude of the challenge, we were highly motivated to put forth a rapid response campaign to try to raise the funds needed before the clock ran out. Thanks to the amazing generosity of several conservation-minded Great Neck families who should also be credited with providing the bulk of the privately raised funds a decade ago for part one of the Great Neck conservation effort and nearly others, the necessary funds were assembled in time for Mass Audubon to take advantage of this incredible opportunity and save this land.
While we will certainly need additional help for this sanctuary to reach full potential, the property has been acquired and is now protected. Karen and her husband Paul, who passed away seven years ago, received the property from his grandparents. They purchased it after emigrating from Finland and used it for a woodlot. Then you are on foot.
You clamber through a dry watercourse clogged with bitterbrush and poison ivy; you sidle along a rock ledge. Look up: A dissolving jet contrail is the only sign of the time in which we live. Look down: What seem like stones at your feet are in fact remnants of cooking vessels. Such relics are everywhere, if you know how to look: A saltbush-covered mound conceals a ceremonial kiva; a subtle line in the earth marks a road connecting ancient villages.
All around is evidence of things made, laid, and lived in centuries ago. One treasure still inside the Bears Ears monument is Procession Panel, a nearly foot-long rock carving, or petroglyph, on Comb Ridge.

At least 1, years old, it depicts a ceremonial gathering of some humanlike forms converging from four directions. A succession of prehistoric cultures occupied the mesas and canyons of southern Utah for more than 12, years. Wetherill excavated the surface ruin at Cave Seven, selling the artifacts to museums and collectors, leaving only a bit of masonry wall and smoke smudges.
Then he kept digging.
He had recently learned the novel concept of archaeological stratigraphy: the idea that prehistory is recorded in successive layers of sediment. Earlier remains lie beneath later ones—ruins under ruins, cultures under cultures. At Cave Seven, Wetherill found below the visible ruins a burial site that predated them by hundreds of years. He dug up 98 skeletons from a previously unknown Basketmaker society.
Deep in this forgotten canyon, deep in time, one culture had given way to another. Bears Ears National Monument is now a battleground in another collision of cultures. Across the American West, from the desert canyons of Utah to the towering conifers of the Pacific Northwest, and in the mountains and sagebrush basins between, Americans are engaged in bitter disputes over public lands. Nowhere has the battle been fiercer than around national monuments, particularly Bears Ears, which then President Barack Obama created in December Last December, President Donald Trump reduced the 1.
He declined to be interviewed. When Congress passed the Antiquities Act in , authorizing the creation of such monuments, it was partly in reaction to the theft of Native American artifacts by people like Wetherill. Designating a monument requires no input from Congress. There is no language in the law, however, granting subsequent presidents the power to amend monuments created by their predecessors.
