Conservation Land 4 (Provincetown Conservation Trust). Robert and Rebecca Patterson donated this 0.24-acre parcel to the Provincetown Conservation Trust in May 1998. It abuts the Eder Property at 86R-88 Atkins Mayo Road, which was acquired by the Town in 2021 as conservation land. Taken together, the Patterson and Eder parcels create a 0.93-acre green “spur” off the adjoining Old Colony Nature Pathway. The trust describes Conservation Land 4 as a maple swamp.
“The area is full of Cape Cod scrub pine, white pine, birch, oak, and — of course — maple trees. Visitors to the site will also find swamp azaleas and lady slippers,” the trust said on its website. “Animals recorded here have included red-tail hawks, long-eared owls, and a variety of migratory birds, including rusty blackbird, red-throated warbler, and Townsend’s warbler.”
