Type: Future vegetation plot analysis
Description: We hope to soon analyze some of our vegetation plots onthe Mazar property, a 101 acre TNC conservation restriction that abuts Mashacket Cove of the Edgartown Great Pond in the Kanomika Neck area . TNC also owns in fee about 10 acres of abandoned hay field and 4.5 acres of restored grassland/heathland on the adjacent MacKenty Lots. This property is part of what TNC has designated its “Edgartown Plains Preserve” which includes Katama Air Park and Herring Creek Farm. The land protection efforts that created the Preserve were intended to protect, maintain, or restore sandplain habitat, especially early seral communities including sandplain grassland and shrubland.
