The Granby Land Trust's motto, "Preserving Granby's Natural Heritage," tells in a few words what the organization does. Its mission is compelling and, since its founding in 1972, it has enjoyed remarkable success in setting aside wildlife corridors, hiking trails, fragile environments, increasingly rare agricultural land and magnificent vistas. Through its efforts, "Mary's Rock," which affords a panoramic view north towards Springfield and beyond, and the sadly decimated Granby Oak have been protected. And, too, the Land Trust has partnered with other "sister" organizations such as the State (Enders Forest, particularly), the McLean Game Refuge, The Nature Conservancy and the Town of Granby to achieve the shared goals of all of those land stewards. Its web page, www.GranbyLandTrust.org, has won statewide recognition and is worth a visit. In short, amazing!
