School District Conservation Easements
School District Conservation Easement 1 - In September of 2005 the Bedford School District was required by NHDES to grant a conservation easement on 11.4 acres of land in order to mitigate for wetland impacts associated with construction of the high school. The easement is composed of two parcels. One abuts the high school property. The other parcel is on County Rd. behind the SAU building and contains a vernal pool, a valuable natural resource.
School District Conservation Easement 2 - In January of 2008 the School District granted a second easement to the Land Trust, this time as mitigation for wetland impacts needed to construct ball fields between McKelvie and the SAU building. This easement is ~7.6 acres in size. It is west of the easement that has the vernal pool and is connected to it. The trails there are used for hiking, cross country practice and outdoor classrooms.
