The 135-acre Bloomfield property is located on the Class VI Cummins Pond Road in Dorchester. It contains upland forest and a small stream. The easement ensures that the property will be retained forever in its undeveloped scenic and open space condition.
The Winsor property on Stinson Lake Road in Rumney abuts the White Mountain National Forest and contains agricultural fields and managed forest, a certified tree farm, wildlife habitat, a fabulous stream and a recreational trail. The easement ensures the 128-acre property will remain undeveloped, providing for ongoing woodland management and conserving important natural resources and wildlife habitat.
This landmark property protects the beautiful field along the Baker River on the road to Rumney Village. The 26-acre property contains rolling fields and forest, riparian habitat and pedestrian access to the Baker River, as well as significant water resources including an underlying gravel aquifer. The family continues to own the land but has given up the right to develop it.
The Fauver property off Texas Hill Road in Plymouth protects 401 acres of fields, wetlands and woods and connects the trails on Plymouth Mountain via a new "Fauver East" Trail to the town-owned Water-Newton Natural Area. By placing a conservation easement on the property, a significant block of unfragmented wildlife habitat will be protected, the quality of ground water and surface water will be maintained, and broad views of the forested ridge will be preserved for the scenic enjoyment of the general public. The family gave up the right to develop 362 of the 401 acres; the remaining 39 acres will be limited to the construction of no more than six single-family residences.
