Ausbon Sargent Announces two New Properties in New London

This is a very busy time for Ausbon Sargent.  We are happy to announce that we closed on the New London Pleasant Street-East easement on April 25th followed by the Edwin S. Brown Forest Preserve in New London on May 1st.  Each of these properties is a significant protector of wetland and wildlife habitat and helps to protect the watersheds of Pleasant Lake and Messer Pond, respectively. We thank New London Conservation Commission chair, Bob Brown, for his hard work on both of these projects.

Help Conserve a Working Farm in Warner, Forever!

We are just $10,000 shy of reaching our goal to save the 150-acre Brown Family's Frazier Brook Farm on Mason Hill Road in Warner. Through a "bargain sale" by the Brown family in which they are donating 25% of the land value, a generous grant of $180,000 from LCHIP, a pledge of $75,000 from the Warner Conservation Commission, and approximately $25,000 in grants and private donations, we have nearly reached the total estimated project cost of $369,000.  We are accepting donations through May 31, 2018 and hope you can help us reach this mark.  Make your donation by clicking on the Donate button at the top right of this homepage or contact us directly for other options.  Read our fundraising flyer by clicking here.
