The Conservation Commission holds the primary conservation easement, donated to the town by Olivia St. John Smith in 2008. Five Rivers holds executory easement.
This acreage, along North Road, has a wonderful mix of forest, fields, and wetlands. Of particular note is the property’s large wetlands, a beaver pond complex that exhibits extensive plant and wildlife diversity. This wetlands and forest is blessed with a host of wildlife that, in addition to beaver, include moose, bobcat, deer, bear, turtles, porcupine, and many species of birds.
