STEPHEN D. MATTHEWS NATURE PRESERVE

A conservation easement, acquired in 2006, protects this 10.8-acre coastal woodland owned by National Grid that buffers the Village of Poquott from the power plant. The Trust is meeting the challenge of the storm damage and wind-felled trees from Irene, Superstorm Sandy, and recent snow storms.  The management plan includes controling invasive species and replanting with native plants and trees.
