The Barclay's Wood project acquired a valuable piece of unspoiled countryside slated for development and re-designated it as a nature preserve.

The 15.5-acre parcel sites east of Route 59 off Pebble Creek Road in Tower Lakes. It's an oak savanna with 100- and 200-year-old white and red oak trees and contains a high quality creek and wetlands.

Besides the two local governments, three local nonprofit organizations and four private contributors helped realize the project.

BACOG created the Donald P. Klein award to posthumously honor the council's founding executive director. The award aims to recognize excellence in the current projects and activities of BACOG's villages and townships which further the quality-of-life goals advanced by Klein for more than 30 years.
