Help Us Protect the Sawyer Brook Headwaters Property in Grantham

On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, the Town of Grantham voted overwhelmingly to designate $300,000 of town funds toward the acquisition of the Sawyer Brook Headwaters parcel.  For this project to be completed, it will be necessary to raise the remaining funds of $215,000 from private and grant-funding sources.  The Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust will be submitting grant proposals to a number of potential grantors, but the completion of this project will remain dependent on the help of many friends, neighbors and interested conservation enthusiasts like you.

Join Ausbon Sargent on Our Bradford Bog and Bradford Springs Walk

Thursday, July 18th - 2:00 PM

With 148 properties comprising 11,576 acres in our 12-town region, Ausbon Sargent has quite a number of very special places to share. In partnership with the Bradford Conservation Commission, Ausbon Sargent will host a walk along the Bradford Bog boardwalk that spans the quaking bog and leads to the lookout tower which offers an expansive view of the bog.  The next stop will be a short drive to the south side of East Washington Road where we will visit the site of the historic Bradford Springs Hotel and Bradford Springs.  The walk is not difficult and should be of interest to a multi-generational group.

Visit our webite calendar under News to RSVP and find driving directions.

Ausbon Sargent Closes on the Webb/Crowell Forest in Sutton

Friday, April 26th          

Ausbon Sargent is excited to announce that we have closed on the 94-acre Webb/Crowell Forest located in Sutton on Eaton Grange Road West. 

Two years prior, in August of 2017, Ausbon Sargent was given an 8-acre parcel of land in the Town of Sutton.  This 8-acre property was adjacent to the 86-acre Webb/Crowell Forest which is owned by the Town of Sutton.  Because of their proximity, in the spring of 2018, Ausbon Sargent gifted the 8 acres to the Town of Sutton.  

Ausbon Sargent was pleased to find that one year later, at the 2019 Sutton Town Meeting, the residents voted to grant a conservation easement to Ausbon Sargent on the entire 94-acre parcel.

The property offers numerous recreational opportunities for local hikers that can be found on the Webb/Crowell Trail Map found by clicking here.
