The Lyme Land Trust is very sorry to report the death of a beloved and admired friend, Linda Bireley. Linda, lover of the environment and the preserves of Lyme, passed away Nov. 8, 2019. Linda served on the board of directors of the Lyme Land Trust for more than ten years; 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. She spearheaded the campaign to build three fish ladders in Lyme, most notably the Moulson Pond fish ladder. Linda was the first Town of Lyme Open Space Coordinator, from 2006 until 2014, when she was forced to retire due to illness. We in Lyme were very fortunate to have had Linda,  a woman with such a dedicated and generous spirit, serving on our behalf. Calling hours are Friday, November 15, 5:30-7:30pm at the Lyme Fire Department, Rte 156, Lyme. For the full obituary.
