Since May 2022, they have been busy inventorying the property's natural resources and familiarizing themselves with the property.

On June 21, 2022, the Conservation Division and Land Stewardship, Inc. hosted a public charrette to gather feedback and discuss how to best manage Chiesa Farm. Watch the Video Recording
