The Franklin Land Trust partnered with Department of Fish & Game to purchase a 6 acre portion of the Kretzenger Farm, known locally as Hunting Hills. Suzanne Kretzenger, Trustee of the estate wished to see this area kept open for public use and wildlife habitat. The property contains over 800 feet of the Saw Mill River, a small perennial stream and pond. The area contains high value wildlife habitat and is now part of the Montague Wildlife Area and open to the public for fishing and other passive recreational activities.
