64 beautiful acres Conserved in Auburn

64 beautiful acres Conserved in Auburn

64 acres of forest, farmland, and wetlands in Auburn was recently conserved through a conservation easement with SELT. This project actually began as a promise made in March of 1978. As an oath to his grandmother when she sold him the land, Mickey Rolfe swore that he would protect the natural and scenic beauty of these family lands for future generations. In partnership with the Auburn Conservation Commission and SELT, Mickey and his wife Debbie fulfilled this promise in October 2016, selling an easement for nearly 50% less than its appraised value, a generous bargain sale.  With this easement, a top priority of the Auburn Conservation Commission was conserved and a family promise fulfilled.
