Sharon, MA – The Trustees of Reservations (The Trustees) are preparing for the potential impacts from Hurricane Sandy, including predicted high winds and heavy rainfall. The Trustees will close its reservations statewide as of sunset on Sunday, October 28. The organization’s 109 properties – which include Crane Beach in Ipswich, World’s End in Hingham, Chesterfield Gorge in Chesterfield, Long Point on Martha’s Vineyard, and Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge on Nantucket – are expected to remain closed for the duration of the storm. Following an assessment of weather conditions and property impacts, The Trustees will begin to re-open its properties following the storm, as conditions allow.
The Trustees are asking the public to refrain from visiting their properties prior to and during the storm, as there is significant danger of flooding, falling trees and tree limbs, high surf, and other hazardous conditions.
The Trustees urge the public to check our website at www.thetrustees.org for updates and announcements regarding when their properties will re-open.
