Jones Brook/Payne Conservation Easement

The Jones Brook/Payne Conservation Easement is an active project for a 23.43 acre parcel located off White Mountain Highway in Milton, NH. This property is owned by the town of Milton and the conservation commission is looking to permanently protect it with the placement of a conservation easement. It consists of 11 acres of freshwater wetland habitat with the remainder being forested habitat. The property is in close proximity to over 4,000 acres of other conserved lands. Both the Branch River and the Jones Brook border this property and contribute to the 11 acres of wetlands within. The Branch River is one of the major tributaries into the Salmon Falls River and native brook trout have been known to utilize this coldwater habitat. The Jones Brook/ Payne property is open to the public for passive recreational activities, such as hiking, fishing and bird/animal watching!
