BENNINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont town of Bennington has closed on the sale of 168 acres of wetlands, a popular spot for kayakers, bird watchers, fishermen and hikers.

The Bennington Banner reports (https://bit.ly/Jea059) the land was bought with a $122,000 grant from the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board, and over $100,000 in private donations.

The land currently is called “The Walloomsac Headwaters park and Natural Area,” but that’s likely to change. It was given by Steve Greenberg, son of long-time Bennington residents Norman and Selma Greenberg. The town plans to name the park for them.

The purchase links several pieces of publicly owned land.
