The Pawtuckaway River Reservation consists of a series of five individual parcels acquired by the Southeast Land Trust since 2008, including:
Why conserve these lands? The Pawtuckaway is one of the Lamprey River’s cleanest tributaries, beginning at Pawtuckaway Lake and connecting with the Lamprey in west Epping. The Pawtuckaway River is located within a core focus area of the Land Conservation Plan for New Hampshire’s Coastal Watershed, a publicly-created blueprint that identified large blocks of land throughout the region as top priorities for land conservation due to water quality, wildlife, and ecological benefits.
Our hope is to create a network of trails through these properties, supporting continued public access to this remote river corridor.
