We hope you have heard about our current land protection project: the Pine Hill Community Forest. This project represents the Land Trust’s largest and most complex project to date. The transaction involves two separately exceptional tracts held by the same family for 100 years. In partnership with Tin Mountain Conservation Center, USVLT plans to purchase the 436-acre Pine Hill parcel in Conway and the 93-acre Bald Hill parcel in Albany.  These parcels will be permanently protected from development and managed as working forests. USVLT will own the Pine Hill parcel “in fee” and Tin Mountain will own the Bald Hill parcel, subject to a conservation easement held by USVLT. Key conservation values of the parcel include 6,430 feet of the Conway Recreation Path with deeded public access; 125 acres of wetlands; 3,300 feet of frontage on the Saco River; and 2,600 feet of scenic, undeveloped frontage on NH Route 16 and US Route 302. For this installment of the Easement Exploration Series, we will head to the Pine Hill parcel to some of these conservation values firsthand. Local surveyor and Land Trust President, Doug Burnell, will lead the group and show us just how special this property really is.

Details and Directions:

9 am start time. This is a family-friendly event that is free and open to the public. Meet at the Smith-Eastman Boat Launch (behind the Conway Police Station) on Meeting House Hill Rd. Parking will be in the public lot but look for “Land Trust Event” signs for guidance. Bring water, bug spray, and sunscreen and wear sturdy shoes. Pets on leashes welcome. For questions or more details, please email [email protected] or call the USVLT office at 603-356-9683.
