Westport’s Partrick Wetlands Preservation Fund presented the deed to the wetlands to Earthplace officials during the Green Earth Gala tonight at Earthplace. Involved in the ceremony were Arthur Cohen (l-r) from the preservation fund, Earthplace Board of Directors President Rob Chasin, preservation fund Co-Director Sean Timmins, preservation fund Co-Director Matthew Mandell and Earthplace Executive Director John Horkel. The preservation fund received the 22 acres of land from ARS Partners as part of a settlement over development of the property located between Newtown Turnpike and Partrick Road. As part of the settlement, the preservation fund was required to find a new steward for the property and announced last month they had chosen Earthplace (See WestportNow March 30).
