150 Acres Saved

On October 31 a land trust announced 150 acres of open space in Amherst has been permanently protected from development. The USA is losing 6,000 acres of open space to development every day. Kestrel Land Trust said the town of Amherst had saved the land. The land is along West Pomeroy Lane.

Protecting open space is one of the best ways to stop climate change, which the world's leading scientists say is a major threat to earth's ability to support human life. Saving forests and farmland encourages people to live in places like downtown Brattleboro, where it's possible to live car free. Multi-family housing is more energy efficient than single family houses. In New York City, millionaires live in apartments.
