Silver Lake Eastside Easement

The Silver Lake Land Trust is excited that the Harris Center and John Newcombe (representing Seaver Silver Lake Farm Trust) have finalized an agreement to conserve an additional 187 acres on Silver Lake in Harrisville. This large tract is adjacent to the land in Nelson that the Seaver Silver Lake Farm Trust put into conservation in 2010, and will protect an additional 77 acres in the Silver Lake watershed as well as 110 acres in the Child’s Bog/Seaver Reservoir watershed. Putting this land into conservation means that approximately 75% of the land in the Silver Lake watershed is protected from development. Combined with the Seaver Silver Lake Farm Trust land in Nelson under easement, development on these two easements is limited to a single building set well back from the shoreline or to the existing campsite in Harrisville.

Seaver Silver Lake Farm Trust Proposed Easement

The Silver Lake Land Trust has pledged all of its assets toward the easement purchase price. A $350,000 gap remains, which we must fund raise by September 30th of this year.We want everybody who loves and enjoys Silver Lake to have the opportunity to give. This is a gift to all – past and future generations. It is because our parents and grandparents taught us to treasure the Lake’s water quality, just as we are working on behalf of our kids and grandkids to preserve this beautiful lake.
