Dr. Herb and Judy Brown established a fund that will ensure proper maintenance of the Thornwood Preserve. This generous couple gifted beautiful woods, located on Morristown Pike, to the City of Greenfield’s Parks and Recreation Department in 2006. Their desire is to ensure the preservation and enjoyment of the property in its natural state for many generations to come. Because it is so important to the Browns that the property be well maintained, they have created a maintenance endowment fund that will provide the Parks Department with income to support this purpose forever. The fund was created at this time so that it will grow and sufficiently support the property when it is opened to the public in the future. Contributions to this fund will enhance the impact the Parks Department will have on the maintenance of the Thornwood Preserve.
“God has blessed us in many ways. Thornwood Preserve has been one of those special blessings. We enjoy so much roaming the woods and observing the wildlife there. The gift of the woods and the maintenance endowment fund are ways we can share this unique place with others.” —Herb & Judy Brown
