Guam - It's one of the largest donations ever made to a public non-profit on island totaling 70-hectares of undeveloped land that will be used to give back to the people of Guam.

At a press conference today, Guam Preservation Trust board chairman Mike Makio thanked Shell Guam for the land, which will be converted into the Atantano Heritage Preserve. The property starts in piti  and runs through the outskirts of Santa Rita.

"In the coming days and weeks you'll see more information on the programs that we're going to be undertaking and how we're going to interact with our partners to ensure the schools are involved, students are involved and we'll actually outline more on how the master planning for the site will occur," he said.

The property contains multiple cultural, natural, and historic resources that may be used to increase our knowledge of Guam history and heritage.
