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.

In the last decade, the trust has protected nearly 500 acres of land through conservation easements, land donations and bargain land sales.
