Open Space Conservation Easements
39 Acres, 2002
Access: Private property. No public access.
Conservation Values: Perennial riparian corridor, and wildlife and plant habitat.
Located in the southwestern part of the county, this site is downstream from the Hannan Wildlife Preserve, and helps to build on BYLT’s long-term goal of protecting this important corridor for wildlife migration. The easement represents contiguous parcels with a particularly pristine section of Dry Creek running through them. The Feld’s parcels are heavily forested, with good tree canopy over the creek. Wildlife abounds in the area, including a beaver pond just upstream from one of their parcels.
