This spring, with help from interns from Staples High School, we are improving the entrance at the 39-acre Newman Poses Preserve in Westport. The property, which was made possible by gifts of land by the Newman and Poses families, is named after actor and philanthropist Paul Newman who lived nearby, and Lillian Poses, a neighbor and
friend of Mr. Newman’s who worked on the New Deal in the FDR administration. Gault Energy is donating topsoil and gravel, the Town of Westport is lending their Public Works crew, Barts Tree Service is removing trees, and Oliver’s Nursery is donating native plants. Local carpenter Dan Magner is designing a new preserve sign.
The estimated cost after the gifts received from Gault Energy, the Town of Westport, Barts Tree Service and Oliver's Nursery is $6,000. Please help defray this cost by making a donation to this project!
