Nutfield News • March 10, 2011 Workshop Planned to Train Conservation Land Stewards


——◆ —–––

The Conservation Com- mission is sponsoring a workshop on March 26 from 9 a.m. to noon for res- idents interested in helping protect the town’s conserva- tion lands.

Southeast Land Trust Director Phil Auger will lead the program at Broad- view Farm, which will in- clude lessons on using a

compass, checking property boundaries, checking trees and bushes, and exploring lands of the town’s protected proper- ties, according to Commis- sion Chair Margaret Ives. Land stewards will be responsible for walking con- servation properties they choose to adopt at least once a week, taking notes and photos documenting vandal- ism, and things that seem amiss. Ives noted that stewards

will not be restricted to walking their own properties and will be encouraged to keep an eye on any of the town’s conservation proper- ties they enjoy. The town’s conservation lands are as follows: Ballard Town Forest, located along Oleson/Ballard Road; Cole Marsh, along Damren Road in Derry and Valley Hill Road in Hampstead; Albert Doolittle Conservation Area, at Faith Drive; Broadview

Farm, along Young Road; Quail Hill Conservation Area, along Tigertail Circle and Bowers Road; Shepard Park, along Pond Road and Hampstead Road;


Corneliusen Property, along English Range Road; Weber Forest, on Drew Road; Ballard State Park (State of New Hampshire), on Island Pond Road; Frost Farm (State of New Hampshire), on Route 28; Arnold Geor- ge/Lewis Builders Property,

on New Hampshire Rail Corridor; Gulf Road Con- servation Property, on Gulf Road; The Grinnell Con- servation Property (Private), on Island Pond Road; Windham Road and Bowers Road (State of New Hamp- shire), on New Hampshire Rail Corridor, The Fer- dinando Property, along Chester Road (State Route 102); New Hampshire Re- creation Trail (West), inter- sects various roads in Derry;

New Hampshire Recreation Trail (East), intersects vari- ous roads in Derry.

The properties are used

for a variety of recreation activities, including hiking, horseback riding, biking, and camping. All residents are encouraged to take ad- vantage of the properties and be vigilant for abuse. To see a map showing where each of the properties are located, visit

Bob Houses Gone from Beaver Lake


——◆ —–––

The rain that pelted the area Sunday signaled the better part of valor was to get the bob houses off Beaver Lake. And come Monday morning, they were gone.

On Sunday, during the morning and early after- noon, several bob houses were surrounded by people and fishing equipment, with ice fishing in full swing. However, the people who

With temperatures climbing, two of the many bob hous- es positioned around Beaver Lake are now gone.

put the bob houses out on the lake are well aware of how quickly the ice can become unstable and dan- gerous.

The rains and warm tem- peratures that day heralded the end of the safe ice fish- ing season at Beaver Lake, and the bob houses disap- peared as quickly and silent- ly as they had appeared sev- eral months ago.

The decision to remove

them was a good one. By late Monday morning, open water was visible by the out-

flow from the brook along the property lines of 24 and 26 Beaver Lake Avenue, and open water was flowing along the edge of the shore. Ice out at Beaver Lake last year came early in March, but that is not expected to be repeated this season. Nevertheless, the ice on the lake’s surface is close to the top of many property walls, so additional melting of the ice itself and the still substantial snow drifts along the shoreline properties, not to mention the run-off that

will come from the road- ways and the properties on the far side of the roads sur- rounding the lake, will quickly bring it over the lake’s banks as the ice begins to disappear. Cold, freezing nights but

warm days encourage in- creased melting, and flood- ing continues to destabilize the lake ice. Residents are urged to pay heed to the message implicit in the dis- appearance of the bob house: thinning ice - danger - stay off.

Car Prowling in Derry Leads to Arrest

The 16-year-old driver of the Subaru was also arrested for prowling and was later released to a par-

ent. Information regarding whether items were stolen from cars parked at the Workout Club is not avail- able at this time, according to Thomas. Marcotte’s bail was set at $2,000 cash and he was transported to the Rock- ingham County Jail in Brentwood.
