Lyme Land Trust to Rename Moulson Pond Fishway in Honor of Former Board Member, Land Trust President Linda Bireley.

LYME — The Lyme Land Trust will rename the Moulson Pond Fishway in honor of former board member and Land Trust President Linda Bireley.  Ms. Bireley, lover of the environment and the preserves of Lyme, passed away Nov. 8, 2019.

She served on the board of directors of the Lyme Land Trust for more than 10 years, as president from 2006-2007.  As stewardship committee chair, she worked to develop many of the trails in Lyme and developed a digitized stewardship monitoring program.

Ms. Bireley spearheaded the campaign to build three fish ladders in Lyme, most notably the Moulson Pond fish ladder. She was the first Town of Lyme Open Space Coordinator, from 2006 until 2014, when she was forced to retire due to illness.

The Lyme Land Trust notes in a press release, “We in Lyme were very fortunate to have had Linda,  a woman with such a dedicated and generous spirit, serving on our behalf. Moreover, she was a beloved and admired friend.”

Calling hours are Friday, Nov. 15, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Lyme Fire Department, Rte. 156, Lyme.
