In August, 2015, Patricia Sorento of Sunapee donated the Sorento Conservation Easement to The Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust. This property is a beautiful, undeveloped mix of fields and forests with a stream that flows through the southeastern portion of the property providing a natural habitat for many woodland birds, animals, reptiles, amphibians and insects. The soils are highly ranked for forest production. There is a snowmobile trail that winds through the Sorento easement offering opportunities for low impact public recreation. This 37-acre conservation easement is also near other protected land including Ausbon Sargent's Wendell Marsh easements, NH Fish and Game's Dobles Tract, and the Town of Sunapee's Webb-Flint Lot and Dewey Woods Preserve. A Stewardship contribution from the Sunapee Conservation Commission ensures that Ausbon Sargent can watch over the Sorento property forever.
