This property is comprised of two parcels, Powers Beach .08 acres, address “The Strand”, which was protected by Ralph A. Powers, and Powers Preserve 3.0 acres, 229 Great Neck Road.
Powers Preserve is part of a large meadow habitat maintained as a 5.3-acre field shared by three adjoining landowners and the Waterford Land Trust. The field borders Goshen Cove and Great Neck Road.
Easements have “the common purpose of conserving the natural values of the protected property and protect the animal, bird and plant population and prevent the use or development of that property for any use.” Easements do not have public access (except where noted); however, one of the missions of the WLT is to preserve open space and protect it from development or any other use that would harm the natural landscape.
