Glenmont, Ohio

118 Acres | May 12, 2004
Robert E. Murray, donor
Owned in Title

Robert E. Murray’s 118-acre property in Glenmont---a village of only a few hundred people in central Ohio---is now protected as a permanent sanctuary. The combination of heavily wooded hills and open low-lying areas of this safe haven provide habitat for a diverse array of forest, field, and edge-dwelling birds, as well as for deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, squirrels, and other small mammals.

The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust holds the title to this sanctuary.  That means HSWLT is responsible for all property taxes and maintenance costs for the property -- every year, forever.  In addition periodic inspections are made to ensure that the wildlife habitat remains in good condition.  These inspections, and the handling of any damage or destruction, cost heavily in professional staff time and travel expenses.

HSWLT has promised to keep this property as a sanctuary forever -- and that promise will be kept.  If you can help with the cost of stewardship for this and the other properties HSWLT protects, please donate here.
