The Shawe Preserve

Town of Patterson – 18 acres.

Preserve Overview:  A rugged, heavily wooded hillside overlooking Ice Pond, the Shawe Preserve is part of the Ice Pond Conservation Area.  The Shawe Preserve was donated to the Putnam County Land Trust by George and Pam Shawe in 1976. The preserve has no road frontage and an access easement has not been cleared as it traverses very steep and rugged terrain. This right of way from Ice Pond Road has not been developed and there are no current plans to do so.  The Shawe property was donated to PCLT after the surrounding lots were subdivided.
