Anderson/Bahrych/Jefferts Neighborhood Easement

Shaw Island
Year protected: 1994
Land protected: 8.2 acres
Shoreline protected: 600 feet
Public benefits:  Shoreline

Charles and Barbara Anderson, Keith Jefferts, and Lynn Bahrych, neighbors near Neck Point on Shaw Island, joined together in 1994 to donate an 8.2 acre conservation easement on this waterfront property that they own in common.  This neighborhood effort protects 600 feet of pocket beach shoreline, and prohibits any development on the property.  Looking out over the Tift Rocks National Wildlife Refuge, this property is now being actively managed by these families to encourage and sustain native wildlife.
