Granby Land Trust Vice President (and all-around great guy) Dave Emery gave a presentation on the GLT’s Dismal Brook Wildlife Preserve to the Women’s Breakfast Group on May 4 at the Granby Senior Center.

Using a PowerPoint presentation as a visual aid, Emery talked about the known history of the property from the 1700s through the present; the incredible generosity, thoughtfulness and foresight of former Granby resident and GLT Board Member Jamie Gamble, who donated the 210-acre property to the GLT in 2020; all of the work done by GLT volunteers to get the property ready to be opened to the public; all of the unique and beautiful places that make-up the preserve; and the variety of flora and fauna that thrive there.

The event was a big success—so much so that a follow-up Senior Center field trip to the Preserve is being planned for the summer. To see a map of the Dismal Brook Wildlife Preserve, go to
