In a compact town like Clinton, MA, every effort should be made to preserve land for environmental conservation. This is what the town achieved when purchasing Rauscher Farm in 2008. A group of residents in town had led the campaign to preserve the last remaining large open space within the community. Over a decade later we devoted our efforts in this project to examine all aspects of the relationship between Rauscher Farm and the people of Clinton. We have provided a set of recommended action items that the Rauscher Farm Management Subcommittee can pursue. We hope that our comprehensive investigation, analysis, and recommendations may all help to serve the best interest of the Rauscher Farm Management Subcommittee, the people of Clinton, and Rauscher Farm itself.
