On October 16, 2020, Trudy Daniels transferred ownership of her 146-acres of land on Pumpkin Hill Road to Ausbon Sargent. The property will be called the "Wayne and Trudy Beaver Saga Pond Forest."
This property is highly ranked for wildlife habitat in the 2020 Wildlife Action Plan, and will be forever conserved for wildlife. It includes an extensive beaver pond wetland and a portion of the Frazier Brook. The property is near other conserved land in the towns of Warner, Salisbury and Webster, helping to create a wildlife corridor in that portion of our region. There is a trail on the property, and it will remain open to the public for low-impact recreation. Along the trail, hikers will be invited to take in the views overlooking the extensive beaver pond.
Trudy Daniels shared “For 28 years I have been observing three dynasties of beavers on the pond. I want to make sure that they, the beautiful old forest with its rich wildlife and wood plants – in other words fauna and flora – be preserved for future generations and hope that they will enjoy and treasure it for years to come.”
