PLC hosts outdoor events throughout the year. PLC outings are free, and all are welcome. We do ask that you register in advance, so we know how many people to expect. Also, in the case of bad weather, we'll know who to call to cancel. A day or two before the event, we send out an event email to everyone whose registered with complete trip details, such as where to meet, directions, parking instructions, what to bring etc. So always look for that email if you've registered for one of our events.
Most of our events are open to children, but not always so please read the trip descriptions and if there is any doubt, please call the PLC office 603-487-3331.
Find an outing, register and enjoy!

Where: Tuthill Preserve, New Boston
Join the PLC and our forester for a guided tour of the Tuthill timber harvest.
The long-planned timber harvest at our Tuthill Woodlands Preserve in New Boston gets under way this month. The 195-acre the preserve is among PLC’s largest land ownerships, and is one of the best suited to forest management. PLC commissioned a forest inventory and ten-year management plan for the Tuthill Preserve in 2016. The plan was written by licensed foresters from TEMCO, a division of Meadowsend Timberlands., which has extensive expertise in timber management on conserved properties. TEMCO’s foresters mapped out and marked the harvest this past summer and fall, and will be overseeing the cutting and hauling of the timber. The logging company contracted for the Tuthill harvest is D.H. Hardwick & Sons of Bennington. The work should take 4-6 week (cold) weather permitting.
When: Saturday, March 10 – Time TBD – (probably in AM)
Where: Rice Preserve and Proctor, Lyndeborough
Join us for a winter walk on the Rice Preserve and the new 41 acre parcel from the Proctor Trust. We’ll look for animal tracks and enjoy time outside in the beautiful winter woods.
On December 29th PLC completed our purchase of a 41-acre property in Lyndeborough from the Proctor Trust. The land is located next to PLC’s Rice Preserve, and features dramatic glacial eskers and a stretch of brook that supports an exemplary native trout population. PLC hopes to purchase another nearby tract of 71 acres from the Proctors in the spring of 2018.
The Piscataquog Land Conservancy (PLC) offers events to allow people to connect with our environment. Individuals participating are responsible for their own safety, and for knowing and respecting their own physical capabilities and limitations. Your event registration indicates that: you assume responsibility for yourself and any guests accompanying you, you agree to follow the instructions of the Trip Leader in order to minimize risk, you understand that the Trip Leader and/or any PLC staff present are not necessarily trained in wilderness rescue, first aid, or emergency medicine, and are present only to provide cohesion to the group.
