of the open spaces and prettiest landscapes in Carlisle have been
made possible by the participation of the Carlisle Conservation
Foundation. Among these, the 31-acre Spencer Brook Reservation at the junction of South and West Streets, the 14-acre Poole
Swamp visible from School Street, and the Bates Farm field near
Kimball's ice cream are owned by CCF. In other cases, like the Wang
Coombs land, CCF acted as facilitator and fund raiser to assist
the town's purchase. As development pressures increase, the role
of the Conservation Foundation and its support by members becomes
more important. What open spaces remain for us to enjoy tomorrow
depends on what we resolve to do today.
you value open space and healthy unspoiled landscapes, please consider
becoming a member. Dues are modest and tax deductible contributions
to our annual fund are encouraged. As a volunteer organization without
paid employees, you can be sure that each dollar goes to conservation.
We have also established a legacy program to provide a means for individuals to support CCF beyond their important contributions to our Annual Appeal. The Spencer Brook Legacy Society honors those who choose to name CCF in their estate plans in order to make a deferred but lasting impact on land preservation in Carlisle.
