Tim and Lorraine Davis donated a 50 acre conservation easement in Sutton - "Shadow Hill Woodlot". The Davises home and woodlot is accessed from their 48 Shadow Hill Road in Sutton. They have owned their property since 1997 and have been managing it for wildlife habitat. Their residence sits in the deed-restricted east corner of the 50-acre easement, which is primarily forested and is a certified tree farm. There are two cleared areas within the easement that are being managed for wildlife, supporting deer, bear, moose, turkey, woodland birds, reptiles, amphibians and bobcat.
The public benefits of this easement include the conservation and protection of open space, productive forestland capable of producing agriculture and forest products, wildlife habitat, and outdoor recreation on the mix of foot trails and forest roads throughout the property that are open to the public.
The property was sold to Robert L. Cloutier and Marilyn E. Cloutier on August 25, 2011.
