What’s a Conservation Easement? How can it work for you, your family, and your property? Bear-Paw is offering two informative fieldtrips for landowners, their families, and others interested in learning about how conservation can work for them. Conservation easements allow families to permanently protect their land from development while retaining ownership. For all those who have been thinking about doing something to protect their land or helping to protect land in their town, this will be an opportunity to get expert advice from Phil Auger, a retired UNH Cooperative Extension Educator and land protection specialist.

Ed and Ruth Fowler Easement, Candia: November 16, 9:00 a.m. Ed and Ruth donated a conservation easement on their 63-acre woodlot with 1,250 feet of frontage on Palmer Road in 2007. The property is heavily wooded with several streams meandering through it.

Harvey and Barbara Harkness Easement, Epsom: December 14, 9:00 a.m. Harvey and Barbara donated conservation easement on 62 acres of their property on Baybutt Road in 2009. The land has a wide variety of wildlife habitats with prime agricultural soils in field, mixed forest, and over 1,000 feet of frontage on Deer Brook.

For information about Bear-Paw events, how to become a member, land protection options for landowners or volunteering with the land trust, please contact Daniel Kern, 603-463-9400, or info@bear-paw.org. You can also visit their website at www.bear-paw.org.
