The Rocks

The staff at The Rocks is well-versed in the natural history of northern New Hampshire and enthusiastic about the trove of wildlife treasures found in and around our 1,400-acre property. We offer a plethora of programs —  both at The Rocks and at venues around the region —  about the area's wildlife, conservation efforts, and farming.

The Rocks offers several programs for school groups throughout the school year. Children are thrilled to explore our property's many acres of farmland and managed wildlife habitat, where they can discover much about the natural world around them.
