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 149 properties comprising 11,590 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 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.
