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.

Conservation Options Workshop for Landowners

Thursday, September 12, 2019   7-8:30 pm
Brown Memorial Library
West Main Street, Bradford

The Ausbon Sargent staff and board members often receive conservation questions from landowners about the land trust and, more specifically, about the landowner’s personal property.  We have found our Conservation Options Workshop for Landowners to be a valuable resource to address these concerns. 

Join us for a panel discussion comprised of some prominent individuals who have knowledge of and experience working with Ausbon Sargent in the land conservation process.  Panelists will address circumstances and choices that may be similar to those that others landowners have.  We’ll conclude with questions and answers and tasty refreshments. To find more details about the workshop and link to the event flyer, click on Read More below.

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust and its Outreach Committee and the Bradford Conservation Commission.

Ausbon Sargent Helps to Protect Another Property in Sutton

The Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust was granted a conservation easement on the O’Neil property in Sutton on June 13, 2019. This is a generous donation from landowner Robert O’Neil and a valuable asset to the Town of Sutton.
The 22.3-acre O’Neil Conservation Easement, located on NH Route 114 and Johnson Hill Road in Sutton, is the 149th property protected by Ausbon Sargent for a current total of 11,590 acres in the 12-town region it serves. The O’Neil Conservation Easement is an important conservation property for the Town of Sutton as it protects over 1,154 feet of frontage on Russell Pond and protects a feeder stream that flows from Russell Pond to Blaisdell Lake. We thank Rob O'Neil for his thoughtful actions towards keeping this undeveloped special place, as is, for generations to come.
