Shaw Hills Road & Raccoon Hill Road, Andover

This 33.21 acre easement donated by Don and Lorraine Cline is an important link between 2 previously conserved properties. Beth McGuinn, Ausbon Sargent Land Protection Specialist, notes that, "This community minded family has worked with their neighbors to double the acres of conserved land on the north side of Shaw Hill Road and made that land available to the public for walking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and nature observation." The land is primarily undeveloped forestland with frontage on Raccoon Hill Road. In addition to being managed for forest products the property includes an active and expanding sugar bush and a portion of a small home farm. . The land lies between the Ausbon Sargent protected Broshek and Barclin conservation easements and is identified by the New Hampshire Wildlife Action Plan as a supportive landscape for wildlife. Deer, bear, turkey, bobcat, fox, snowshoe hare, roughed grouse, moose, coyote, owls, bald eagles, a variety of hawks, amphibians and reptiles have been observed using the Property. Water flowing from the Cline easement joins the Blackwater River and its associated wetlands, which the NH Wildlife Action Plan considers to be a very important wildlife resource in the region.
