PLC & Brookline Partner to Protect the Nissitissit River

April 2017 – For the better part of the past year, the Piscataquog Land Conservancy has been working with the Brookline Conservation Commission and the Nissitissit River Land Trust to protect 78 acres of undeveloped land and half a mile of frontage on the Nissitissit River in Brookline.  The land has been a priority of local conservationists for nearly fifty years, and the opportunity to protect the land has finally arrived.  The Nissitissit project took a huge step forward on March 15th, when town voters overwhelmingly approved warrant articles funding the town’s purchase of the land, and authorizing a conservation easement to be held by PLC.
