Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries protected 330 acres of land with Mount Grace in 2007. The property was formerly home to Goodwill's Fresh Air Camp. The land is located between the southern end of Lake Rohunta and South Athol Pond and includes 7,500 feet of road frontage that could otherwise have been developed. Most of the lake frontage on the east side of North Spectacle Pond in New Salem is also included in the conservation restriction. Diverse valuable wildlife habitats on the land include upland pine forest and both wooded and open wetlands. Recent ecological research has identified numerous rare species as well as a multitude of more common flora and fauna.
