Lienau Memorial Sanctuary
The Lienau Memorial Sanctuary is located in Weston and was purchased in 1974 with money given in memory of George L. Lienau who was active in the early years of the Council and was a charter member of the Natural Resources Commission. The Town of Wellesley wanted to purchase land owned by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology but a small strip of this property was located in Weston. Since a town may not own land in another community but a land trust may, the Council acquired this one-acre strip that was over Wellesley's border in Weston, allowing the Carisbrooke Reservation to be added to the Town's conservation lands. The Carisbrooke Reservation Trail is located off of Glen Brook Road. The Lienau Trail also connects with the Town of Weston Trail System.
