On February 11, 2022, The Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust finalized a land conservation project that was over a year in the making. The 88.40-acre “Between the Mountains Preserve” is on Mountain Road in the town of Newbury. This property adds to an existing wildlife corridor and protects the area watershed. It is open to the public for low impact pedestrian access, although there are no formal hiking trails. Uses permitted include: hiking, photography, snowshoeing, along with hunting and fishing where appropriate on this property.Read More
On July 21st, Ausbon Sargent will hold an alternative Progressive Dinner, and we hope you will join us! Last year we had a great turnout and heard some wonderful stories from members and friends who purchased their "DIY" dinners and prepared their meals at home. It was a chance to gather with those we felt most comfortable with, while still supporting the land trust AND our local farms and businesses! We are hopeful that the 2023 Progressive Dinner will be held in person, but felt that this year, it was best to play it safe. This year's dinner will be similar to last year's dinner, whereby you can choose a vegetarian or a meat meal. All ingredients will be sourced locally by some of the wonderful farms and businesses in our region. When ordering, please first click on "DONATE" button found at the top of our webpage. Then check the "Progressive Dinner Donation" box in the drop-down list (it is last on the list), and then choose "Other" to input the correct amount. Tickets are $100 each, so please enter $100 for each ticket you wish to purchase. Once you have paid for your tickets, we will contact you via email to determine how many of each type of meal you would like. Gluten free options are available, just ask! Tickets may also be ordered over the phone at 603-526-6555 and through the mail with a check to: ASLPT PO Box 2040 New London, NH 03257 attn: Progressive Dinner. ALL TICKET SALES END JUNE 30, 2022 at NOON!!!
