City celebrates Natti Woodland preservation


A dedication event was held July 11 to celebrate the preservation of Natti Woodland, 20 acres of woods in the northern section of Gloucester. In late 2012, Erik and Theresa Natti sold the land for conservation purposes to the Essex County Greenbelt Association and the New England Forestry Foundation, which will jointly own and manage the property. The parcel is adjacent to the foundation’s 121-acre Norton Memorial Forest, as well as the area’s heavily wooded Dogtown section. “It provides a nice entry point into all of that protected area,” Mayor Carolyn Kirk said.
