On May 29, 2002, former Burrillville town resident, David Sloan donated 34.5 acres to the Burrillville Land Trust. The property has been named in his honor and now has become part of the conserved properties owned by the Burrillville Land Trust. This heavily wooded parcel is part of the land trust’s plan to acquire properties or place conservation easements on property to produce a “green conservation corridor” from Jackson Schoolhouse Road to the West to Eagle Peak Road to the East. There are no public trails on this property as of yet. And hunting is never allowed on any of the properties owned by the Burrillville Land Trust. But members do provide guided walks in hopes of sighting some of the many birds on the land, admiring the flowering trees and flowers, and enjoying the quiet solitude of flowing streams, waterfalls and babbling brooks.
