We are deeply saddened to hear that Jackson Eno has died. He was a friend to many of us and longtime friend to the Simsbury Land Trust. In the mid 1970’s, he was an active member of a small but influential group of residents seeking additional ways to conserve the Town’s natural setting and historical legacy. In 1974 he was a member of a study group that formed to look into the feasibility of establishing a Simsbury Land Trust and in 1976 he was one of its founders. He was a trustee for many years and continued his lifelong interest in the organization and its mission. He was always willing to sit down and share his wealth of knowledge regarding the history of the community, especially the evolution of land and land management here in the valley and beyond. These meetings were memorable and his deep love for the Town was always evident.
We valued his advice and the chance to have known him. We will miss him.
Simsbury Land Trust protects over 1100 acres of beautiful open space in Simsbury. We have been fortunate to have support from nearly 700 families this year, all making generous membership donations that help make our work possible. We are able to offer many informative and interesting programs each year — free of charge — thanks to these membership contributions.
Simsbury Land Trust memberships are based on the calendar year. It is time to renew your membership for 2015!
Simsbury Land Trust is a non-profit conservation organization that protects the rich natural diversity of Simsbury through the ownership of land and conservation easements.
Because of the Simsbury Land Trust, Rosedale Farms, Tulmeadow Farm and the George Hall Farm are now permanently protected farmland, the Western Ridge and much of the wetlands at its base are protected wildlife corridors, and bobolinks and woodcock are now nesting in the meadows east of the river.
We urge you to visit the trails we maintain on many of our properties and to watch for activities, events and publications that we sponsor. We know you will enjoy the chance to get outdoors, to learn more about the exceptional natural environment here in Simsbury and to meet other people who share your interests. Visit our website often to learn of these and other opportunities. As you get to know us, we hope you will want to become a member and to support the Simsbury Land Trust with an annual membership, an occasional acquisition or stewardship gift, or with a contribution of your time.
