These areas of marsh situated within the Charles River Floodplain represent The Trustees’ commitment to ecological diversity and protecting natural communities.
What makes Medfield Meadow Lots a special place?
We think it’s the way this reservation helps protect key areas within the Charles River floodplain. Medfield Meadow Lots consists of three parcels of freshwater marshland – Pratt Meadow, Perry Meadow, and Hinsdale Meadow – all located in the Charles River floodplain.
Since 1972, The Trustees of Reservations have been part of a public/private cooperative effort to protect the natural beauty and ecological value of the upper Charles River Valley between Norfolk and Dedham. This land protection effort has involved both the acquisition of land – such as Medfield Meadow Lots – and the placement of conservation restrictions on critical parcels of private land. To date, The Trustees have protected nearly 4,000 acres in this critical watershed protection zone.
None. Entire reservation is floodplain.
