West Barnstable, Russo Family donation, 5 acres – 2018
Along 6A in West Barnstable there’s a five-acre plot that was donated to Orenda by the Russo Family. What a special area this is: a mix of wooded uplands with a red cedar grove and a maple swamp with cattails. This property is across the street to the headquarters of our close collaborators, the Barnstable Land Trust.
Directions: The Russo Family Wildlife Sanctuary is along Route 6A across the street from, and slightly east, of, our close friends at the Barnstable Land Trust at 1540 Main Street (Route 6A,) in West Barnstable. It’s not really foot-friendly, so if you visit, do tread carefully. We are in the final stages of working with the family on a more precise name that will reflect their generosity, so stay tuned!
