The town of Bennington, Vermont recently received a donated 96-acre nature reserve.
The One World Conservation Center recently donated the land to the town. The center is reportedly dissolving its assets due to financial problems, and center representatives say they plan to close their doors on March 30.
The donated land is known as the Norman and Selma Greenberg Conservation Reserve. It includes a hiking trail system, acres of open meadow, wetland and wooded hillside. It features a boardwalk-style wetland overlook and a bridge crossing Jewett Brook.
The reserve is located on Route 7 South just 1.3 miles South of the center of Bennington.
