Edward Trompke / Stony Brook Conservation Area

Edward Trompke/Stony Brook Conservation Area (11 acres)

Half of this area was acquired from the South Hadley Conservation Society. The remaining 5.26 acres was donated in 1998 by Alice Trompke to honor her late husband. It is characterized by floodplain forest which run along Stony Brook. This area adjoins a similar conservation area in Granby (also donated by Mr. Trompke). A 6.03-acre tract of land abutting this area was donated to the Conservation Commission. Trails were proposed in the South Hadley portion to connect to an existing trail in the Granby conservation area; however, neighbors objected and the proposal was set aside.
