Tours of the Davis-Douglas Farm will take place September 29 and October 21.

The Wildlands Trust is hosting two open houses at the Davis-Douglas Farm on Long Pond Road.

The events will give visitors a chance to learn about the Trust’s plans to relocate its headquarters to the property and to establish a new conservation center focused on land protection, land stewardship and passive outdoor recreation.

This summer, the Trust purchased the Davis-Douglas Farm, a beautiful 10-acre property on Long Pond Road. A scenic landmark in south Plymouth, this property was once part of Howland Davis’ estate on Long Pond. The property’s former owner– the Bongiovanni Family, has designated that the property be named “Davis-Douglas Farm” to honor both Howland Davis and their grandfather, Percy Douglas, who farmed the land for many years.

The Wildlands Trust is a member-supported non-profit land conservation organization founded in Plymouth in 1973 to preserve the rich natural heritage of southeastern Massachusetts.  To date, the organization has conserved nearly 10,000 acres of land, much of it within Plymouth.

Tours will be conducted for the public on Saturday, September 29 from 10 a.m. to noon and Sunday, October 21 from noon to 2:00 p.m.  Light refreshments will be served. The Farm is located on Long Pond Road in Plymouth. Take Route 3 to Exit 3. Head Southwest on Clark Road to stop sign.

Take left onto Long Pond Rd. Continue less than a mile. The Davis-Douglas Farm is on the right before Morgan Rd. Please call (781) 934 – 9018 with questions or visit www.wildlandstrust.org.
