Sandquist Preserve


Public Access

December 18, 2013

This 22-acre parcel was given to USVLT in December of 2013 by the heirs of Eric G. Sandquist. The property has 1600 feet of frontage on the Wildcat River — one of only two federally designated Wild & Scenic Rivers in New Hampshire — and contains intact floodplain forest with historic flood channels and excellent wildlife habitat.

The property borders the Wildcat River on the west, and to the north, east and south, the property is surrounded by 215 additional acres of conserved land held by the Wildcat River Trust. As this 215-acre parcel is, in turn, contiguous with the White Mountain National Forest, the Sandquist parcel forms part of a large, intact “conservation block” in the Wildcat River Valley.
