Stories from Ipswich, by Gordon Harris
The Keeping of Cattle on Jeffreys Neck

CONSERVATION CORNER: Climate-driven threats are accelerating, and it is becoming abundantly clear that adaptation planning is no longer a luxury. This is the first sentence of the recently released Great Marsh Coastal Adaptation Plan, by the National Wildlife Federation in partnership with the Ipswich River Watershed Association (available online at

On a snowy evening in February, AGN member Wayne Castonguay of the Ipswich River Watershed Association discussed the plan and how our changing climate impacts our properties, natural resources, and community. A copy of his presentation, Great Marsh Coastal Resiliency: What does it mean for Jeffreys Neck?, is HERE.

The plan was also featured an article in the January 28, 2018 Boston Sunday Globe, Using the Great Marsh to Protect from the Fury of the Sea. A copy of the article is HERE.

As a coastal community land trust, the Association of Great Neck looks to its members for support in furthering our coastal resiliency and incorporating adaptation strategies that are climate smart.
