The Zimmerman Marsh Story
In 2011 and 2012 LNCT launched a capital campaign to raise funds for the purchase of this valuable property. The local community, knowing the value of local conservation, generously pitched in to raise enough money to purchase the property. The Collins Foundation and Wheeler Foundation also made significant contributions towards the acquisition and the property became protected in perpetuity in January of 2013.
