Field trip will explore Wendell Marsh area in Sunapee

Sunapee, N.H. – A 1000-acre unfragmented block of forest land, wetland, streams and fields lie between NH Route 11 and Ryder Corner Road in Sunapee. Join the Sunapee Conservation Commission and Ausbon Sargent on Saturday, January 26 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. as they explore 136 acres of this area along Wendell Marsh, which is the first conserved land in this unfragmented block.

The field trip will follow along a recreational trail and bush whack off trail to Wendell Marsh. Participants will learn about the area’s natural environment, its trees, forest and wildlife habitat.

Efforts are underway to conserve this property.  Participants will also learn about what remains to be done to complete the project.

Bring snowshoes if conditions call for it and dress warmly in layers with good boots. Refreshments will be served. Participants should be in good physical condition, able to walk up and down hills in potentially slippery conditions and be willing to walk off-trail.

Participants are asked to contact Ausbon Sargent with your name, the names of all in your party, and your phone number. For more information phone 603-526-6555 or e-mail:
