This 201-acre parcel is the third and largest Ausbon Sargent protected property in Wilmot. It is primarily forested, but also has open areas and wetlands. The Cassey Brook Preserve was managed for forestry in the past, so the property has woods roads in good condition and large open areas created from past log landings. From the southern end of the property, a pleasant hike from Wilmot Center Road, there are nice views of Mt. Kearsarge. Due to the size of the property and its location, it is considered to be a valuable wildlife habitat. Cassey Brook Preserve will remain open for low-impact recreation.
Debbie Stanley shares, "The protection of the Cassey Brook Preserve was made possible using funds generously donated by neighbors of this property. We thank the landowner, Dick Chase, who agreed to sell the property for less than the appraised value by discounting the sale price approximately 10% in value."
