This 102.6 acres of largely forested land was donated to Joshua’s Trust by Ada Wolf in 2007. Located on Back Road in Windham, the property is in an area identified as having the highest natural resource priority in the Town of Windham’s Plan of Conservation. Streams which course through the woods feed into a 22-acre shallow pond, known as Lake Marie.
In addition to the property, Ada Wolf left an endowment for its management and for our land trust to protect adjacent lands, a far-sighted gift which opens a potential greenway. In accordance with Ada Wolf’s wishes, the property is named the Allanach-Wolf Woodlands.
President Allison Burchell-Robinson welcomed close to 100 guests for the dedication of the Allanach-Wolf Woodlands on May 23, 2010.
In 2012, Joshua’s Trust added another 20 acres to Allanach-Wolf through the purchase of 17 acres from the Town of Windham, and the donation of 3.5 acres by Dr. Stein.
