Update on the “Twine Field” Property

Truro’s Twine Field property is a unique natural area that provides important environmental benefits and protects a diversity of plants and animals—many of which are vulnerable or seriously declining. The 10-acre property is an upland meadow, an increasingly rare habitat type in Massachusetts and on Cape Cod. The southern boundary of the property borders Pond Village Road and historic Pilgrim Pond. Please help the Truro Conservation Trust purchase this ecologically significant natural area.

Conservation sought for Truro “twine fields” property

“the last open section of Truro’s twine fields is being considered for development. The town planning board is considering aspects of a 9-lot subdivision plan for the land.

Eastham developer Nate Nickerson has agreed, however, to give the Truro Conservation Trust and other concerned citizens until Jan. 1, 2018 to come up with money to buy the 10 acres at 25 and 25A Pond Road for what will likely be more than $1 million, Gaechter said Friday.”
