The 667 acre Howland Preserve on the Vosburg Neck, Wyoming County has been established to honor Mr. Howland, celebrate his life of service and sacrifice, and acknowledge his remarkable act of philanthropy.

Local people knew Mr. Howland as a man of diverse interests . . . some simple and some refined. A good friend of mine fondly remembers the day she ran into Mr. Howland at the local Agway. He was there to replenish his supply of goat feed . . . wearing a large ruby stick pin in the lapel of his blue sport coat.
Mr. Howland was a man of learning and sophistication. A graduate of New York University, he lived most of his adult life in Manhattan, and his work in corporate America took him around the world. Yet he was a man who cherished his privacy, loved his animals, and appreciated the natural beauty and open spaces that are Riverside Farm.
Mr. Howland was the first male to serve on the board of trustees of the Tunkhannock Public Library. He also served for many years on the board of the Tyler Memorial Hospital. His volunteer interests also included Everhart Museum in Scranton. Service was part of the fabric of Ernest Howland. Sacrifice was also part of Mr. Howland's fabric. Mr. Howland left Manhattan and moved to Riverside Farm when his mother became ill, sacrificing his own interests to care for her until her death.
This sacrifice and service both sprang from a sense of responsibility. When Mr. Howland realized that his life was nearing its end three years ago, he faced difficult decisions about his and his parent's legacy. You see, it was Mr. Howland's parents who purchased Riverside Farm in 1941, but he understood that its future was his responsibility as well.
He chose to leave his property to the North Branch Land Trust. His legacy is now our responsibility.
...
This is the organization Mr. Howland chose for his and his parents' legacy. The purpose, mission and record of accomplishment of North Branch must have appealed to Mr. Howland's desires. To recognize Mr. Howland and his parent's remarkable contribution for the public good, the Board of Directors has decided to call this magnificent 692-acre property the Howland Preserve.
As Mr. Howland wished, this property will be preserved forever.
As responsible stewards of the land Land Trust intends to develop a plan for public uses of the Howland Preserve.
The Howland Preserve is only part of the Vosburg Neck and North Branch working to help conserve a more extensive natural area here for future generations to enjoy. For example, the Land Trust recently conserved the 288 acre Camp Lackawanna adjacent to Howland.
