This short stroll visits a 42-acre property owned by the Nantucket Islands Land Bank, a land-acquisition program funded by a transfer fee on the sale of Nantucket real estate. This program, started in 1983 and said to be the first of its kind in the United States, has protected nearly 2,500 acres on Nantucket. The sandplain habitat here includes pine forest, grassland, heathland, and shrubland bordering Miacomet Pond.
