College hopes to use land for environmental studies and research

From The Rutland Herald: An alumnus and trustee of Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vt., has given the college 377 acres of land in Cornwall bordering the school’s campus. Willard T. Jackson, a 1951 Middlebury graduate, began donating land parcels to the college in 2007. The final and largest section of 269 acres was donated in December. The property is larger than the college’s main campus of 350 acres. The donated property includes more than 7,500 trees, fields, trails, and wetlands that college hopes to use for environmental studies and research.
