Totman Street

Totman Conservation Land is located off Varnum Avenue and sits between two residential neighborhoods, a commercial plaza, and the Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest.  This property as a whole is very difficult to traverse; thick vegetation makes for a dense understory presence of invasive plant species.  The primary conservation value of this property is the protection of a narrow corridor for Clay Pit Brook (at left).  Claypit Brook, which flows southeast to the Merrimack River, serves as an important biological corridor for wildlife traveling between the Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest and the Merrimack River. This property supports various ecosystems including forest, meadow, and wetland.
