The Barrington Area Conservation Trust announced Monday that it had received a two-year, $100,000 grant from the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation.
The funds will be used to hire a development director and develop a capital campaign to preserve critical land parcels in the Barrington area essential to the environmental health of the community. The program also will fund to increase membership and marketing efforts.
