Effort to Protect 600 Acres a Success

Meccawe Club Conserves Forest for Future Generations

Reading and Bridgewater – October 15, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — A large tract of forestland in the towns of Reading and Bridgewater was permanently conserved by the Meccawe Club, the Vermont Land Trust announced today.
The Meccawe Club is a 100-year-old private trout fishing club. Over the years it had acquired lands to protect Meccawe Pond and provide for the club’s future.

“Our Board was committed to this project from the beginning,” reflected John Houlihan, Meccawe Club president. “Through the generosity of our membership, former members and friends, we have preserved the Club and its wilderness feel for future generations.”

The Club will own and manage the land; however, the conservation easement permanently remains on the property.
