Structures up at Round the Cove Preserve fall 2020 to shelter outdoor learning curriculum for the Georgetown Central School. Please look for signage and respect kids’ safety, particularly when school is in session.
Lillian Reid left her property – now part of the Round the Cove forest – to Georgetown with the provision that “said premises are to be used, whenever possible, for and in conjunction with the operation of the Georgetown school or schools; for the use of the students and faculty in furtherance of environmental and conservation purposes or studies. For this purpose, the premises are to be maintained in as natural a state as is practical, and consistent with the uses and purposes herein and hereby expressed.” In 1973, when the Town accepted Lillian Reid’s bequest, no-one could have imagined the pandemic of 2020. How appropriate that her bequest has such practical meaning today!
