The estate of a recently deceased conservationist has contributed $5,000 to boost the fund-raising effort for preserving 170 acres of the Tower Mountain area known as the Rocks of Sharon.
However, the Dishman Hills Natural Area Association says the public cannot become complacent.
“We cannot count on gifts of this size, though more may be forthcoming,” said club member Tom Rogers.
The private conservation group has purchased the property, but still owes $146,604. The group, which took the lead in the 1960s to purchase and preserve the Dishman Hills Natural Area, accepts tax-deductible donations and collects recyclable materials in order to pay the quarterly land payments of $6,467.
