Greenbelt Land Trust acquired Bald Hill Farm, a popular spot for Corvallis residents that features pastures, creeks, and isolated pockets of wetlands, riparian woodlands, and upland forest. The bulk of the purchase price was contributed by public entities, including Bonneville Power Administration ($1.7 million), Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board ($940,000), and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service ($800,000). An additional $500,000 was offset when owner Andrew Martin generously lowered the sales price from $4 million to $3.5 million.
