We are saddened by the passing of our friend and land preservationist, Sam Bowman.   He shared his love of Shawnee Farm with us by preserving it with an agricultural easement.  The easement will protect the two creeks, forests and fields of this productive farm from ever being subdivided into housing lots.

We will miss Sam’s stories and enthusiasm for farmland preservation.
