The Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust is pleased to announce the closing on June 22, 2018 of the Wendell Marsh Expansion project, 40 acres of undeveloped land that includes a significant portion of the marsh habitat. Wendell Marsh is located in Sunapee along NH Route 11 and has been an area of conservation focus for Ausbon Sargent for several years. Ausbon Sargent thanks Dr. Jolyon Johnson, the Town of Sunapee, The Burton D. Morgan Foundation, the Sunapee Conservation Commission and the many people who have contributed to this project.Read More
Thanks to everyone who helped to make our 7th and final Kearsarge Klassic Bike Event on September 8th such a large success! Riders chose their ride from routes of varying degrees of difficulty to ride on classic rural NH dirt and gravel roads in the Mt. Kearsarge/ Ragged/Lake Sunapee region. They enjoyed beautiful views passing by some of Ausbon Sargent's protected properties. Rest stops and a home-cooked post ride meal with free craft beer made the ride particularly popular. And best of all, 100% of their entry fee benefits Ausbon Sargent for land protection. This year, a special treat during the post-ride meal at the New London Historical Society was the musical entertainment by the "Luggnuts," a regional band. It's been a "great ride" and Ausbon Sargent thanks the NH Cycling Club for their work and generosity in this collaboration.
