The new Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve represents a monumental achievement in land conservation-a collaborative effort of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the City of Fall River, and The Trustees of Reservations to protect 13,600 acres of unbroken forest in Fall River, Freetown, and Dartmouth. It's an ambitious undertaking, and the first project in the state to apply the concept of unified ecological management to such a large area owned by multiple partners. But this is just part of the picture. The bio-reserve harbors a rich mix of plant and wildlife species in a wooded landscape punctuated with glistening ponds and the remnants of historic farms and trails. It also protects Fall River's drinking water supply and will provide access to recreational opportunities for 400,000 people who live and work in the Fall River and New Bedford area. The Trustees of Reservations is proud to be a partner in this bold venture and to take the lead in offering creative programs.
