The 20-acre Jagolinzer Preserve in Limington offers an easy walk to enjoy the beautiful Pease Brook, waterfall, old dam, wetlands, forest, and frontage on the Saco River.
The monitoring site takes in views of a cascading waterfall near the Saco River. Photos captured at this site help document lanscape changes over time, water levels, and contribute to a time lapse video that serves as baseline data for close observation of long term climate change trends.
The Francis Small Heritage Trust is a private, not-for-profit conservation land trust that was founded in 1990. We obtain land and easements for public access and traditional uses such as hiking, hunting, fishing, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiles on existing trails. The Trust owns 1472 acres and holds easements on an additional 308 acres. The Trust holds land in northern York County, southern Oxford County and western Cumberland County in Maine.
The Trust also sponsors educational programs where school groups can explore beaver dams, old foundations, natural areas, and hiking trails.
The Francis Small Heritage Trust is part of the Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative's Climate Change Observatory Network, a photo monitoring program designed to work with environmental organizations and communities to assist with the observation, measurement and documentation of long-term climate change trends and adaptation projects.
