NEWLIN: ChesLen Preserve gets bigger

A 20-acre tract became part of the ChesLen Preserve on Feb. 6 when the preserve's owner, Natural Lands, bought the property from an undisclosed neighbor.
The preserve, which is open to the public (and is a favorite running spot for the Young Relative and his father), now comprises 1,282 acres. There are parking areas for visitors on the east side of Route 162, north of Unionville, and on Cannery Road at the park headquarters.
According to the press release, the new acquisition "is part of a rare ecosystem known as the Unionville Serpentine Barrens, which supports a number of threatened plant and animal species."
