Larry St. Pierre
The Attleboro Land Trust honors the life of Larry St. Pierre, who passed away on March 20.
Larry played a key role in the founding of the Attleboro Land Trust in 1990 and was the author of its charter. He had served continuously on our board of directors ever since. He was president from 1991 to 1994 and 1997 to 2001, chaired the land acquisition committee from 2001 to 2006, and served in various other roles over the years including secretary and vice president.
Larry was instrumental in preserving hundreds of acres of conservation land in Attleboro, including the Colman Reservation, the Anthony Lawrence Wildlife Preserve, the Phil and Ginny Leach Wildlife Sanctuary, Larson Woodland, the Milton and Myrtle Veno Nature Preserve, Vaughan Memorial Forest, Uriah's Marsh, and Nickerson Walking Woods Preserve.
Larry was president of the land trust when we acquired our first preserve, the Colman Reservation, in 1992 and is shown in the photo below at the property's dedication ceremony held in 1993.

The Attleboro Land Trust Has Acquired the Deborah and Roger Richardson Nature Preserve
How can we adequately thank Thomas and Stephen Richardson for their extraordinary gift of the land that will be known as the Roger and Deborah Richardson Nature Preserve?† The best way might be to carry the project through so that the general public can begin to enjoy this wonderful gift of open space and wildlife habitat.
With the help of many generous donors, the Richardson property on Wilmarth St. was finally acquired on June 20th.† This brought to a close negotiations that began more than six years ago, and have involved countless hours of volunteer effort.† We are indeed lucky to live in a community where so many citizens and businesses care enough about the local environment to support environmental preservation.
Special thanks go to Mayor Kevin Dumas, Director of Planning, Gary Ayrassian and Conservation Agent Tara Martin for their fast work at the eleventh hour to secure the State L.A.N.D. grant which added over $300,000 to our fundraising effort.†
Our fundraising isnít quite over, though.† We still need to raise funds to provide a parking area, signage, and boardwalks so that the general public can enjoy this beautiful natural preserve. Your help will always be welcome!
--Roy Belcher, Treasurer
