Have you heard about the NED Pipeline project? It is proposed to go through 2 of our featured properties: Horse Hill Nature Preserve and Gilmore Hill Memorial Forest. If you want to know more, please watch our meetings or checkout the Town and NRPC websites. You can also google "NED Pipeline" to find other websites. It will change the landscape. You Commission is concerned, actively engaged, and working to protect our properties.
Hope you have had a chance to get out in the snow and enjoy our properties during this time of year. It can be really pretty and you get to see aspects of these great properties you can't see when there are leaves on the trails.
As the snow melts and we start getting really wet or muddy areas, please don't try to create a new trails or re-route trails to avoid the water. It is really better to just turn around and take a different trail. Creating new ways to get through really creates more issues for our volunteers who keep the trails going all year long. Thanks!
Wildcat Falls Conservation Area
Wildcat Falls Conservation Area is approximately 80 acres of scenic trails, new and old forest, and great views of the Souhegan River. There is ample parking and a great place to take a leisurely walk. Bring the kids, take your dog, or just enjoy the place all by yourself. Blueberry picking should be good this year along the Power lines in July. Note that the State also owns about 50 acres of land that abuts the conservation area and the highway.
