What is a Preserve?

SharpTailedSnake neg2Preserves are lands that the Land Bank has purchased outright to care for in perpetuity. Preserves often provide public access in the form of rustic trails, shoreline access, or wildlife viewing areas. Preserves also help protect the wonderful array of plants, animals, and habitats that make the islands unique.
