The Trustees of Reservations announced Saturday that residents in Lincoln approved plans to integrate the famous deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum under the nonprofit's umbrella.

Under the newly passed plan, the deCordova will remain a separate nonprofit, but the land will be managed by The Trustees, which oversees 116 properties in the state, including cultural institutions, houses and natural space.

Both groups have said the integration will ensure the future financial stability of the sculpture park.

“Today’s vote brings us another step closer to realizing this important partnership between two organizations who believe in the power of connecting people to nature and culture through engaging art experiences," Barbara Erickson, president and CEO of The Trustees, said in a statement.
