Last November, the Rural Land Foundation (Lincoln Land Trust) and Birches School purchased the 16-acre property at 100 Bedford Road that had, for 60 years, been the home of Dr. An Wang and his wife Lorraine. Today, residents of Lincoln, representing the Town's Parks and Recreation Department, voted unanimously to purchase three acres to build an athletic field adjacent to Birches' four acres. The remaining nine acres will be put into conservation, connecting with already existing conservation land. Our students will have access to the athletic field and of course to the network of trails through conservation land. When they study Thoreau, they will be able to walk through the woods all the way to Walden Pond. We at Birches School are very grateful for our collaboration with the Lincoln Land Trust and the Town of Lincoln!
