The Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust is partnering with the Bradford Conservation Commission and the Rural Heritage Connection of Bradford to protect a 67-acre property on East Washington Road in Bradford, NH. This property is deemed ecologically valuable by the US Dept. of Agriculture and is within the Quabbin to Mount Cardigan (Q2C) conservation focus area of national importance. Comprised of a vigorous regenerating woodland area, this property is also valuable for the habitat it affords for threatened wildlife, especially many varieties of birds that are decreasing at an alarming rate in our region.. The benefits to surrounding watersheds and places like the nearby Abenaki ancient healing springs site and the Atlantic White Cedar bog and wildflower sanctuary, are also important. This property will also be open for low-impact recreational use. For more details about this project, or to donate please click HERE.
