    In 2000 the widening of Bear Pond Road allowed by DEC Reg. 6 damaged wetlands and heightened public awareness of the impacts of such expanded road access on the adjacent Five Ponds Wilderness. Thanks to the NE Wilderness Trust and OSI for this great negotiated protection project and opportunity of rewilding beginning today.

    It’s great that OSI and the Trust has bought these acres. But the emphasis on protecting them should be less on their recreational value and more on their ecological and biodiversity value.
