Beaver Brook Association manages 2,200 acres of forest, fields, and wetlands in Hollis, Brookline, and Milford, New Hampshire. This land lies where the southern transitional forest meets the northern hardwood forest, creating a diverse landscape of interest to the naturalist and the hiker alike. Active land management practices protect and encourage a diversity of native species.

This conservation land also provides a network of over 35 miles of trails open to anyone, 365 days a year, from dawn to dusk.  We encourage you to come and connect with the natural world!
