“With a lifetime spent in the health sciences field, Richard and Grace Beazley knew they wanted an active retirement—doing something healthy and physical in the outdoors.

Both of those properties will be familiar to many HFN members. HFN was involved in the initial purchase of the Purcell’s Cove Conservation Lands in the early 2000s and Richard and Grace led several field trips to the NSNT Meander River property over the years. The Beazleys have also led HFN members to many wonderful waterfall sites, not to mention their many other volunteer activities with HFN.
So it’s nice to learn about their basement-cleaning skills too!
