Hebron Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary

Hebron Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary

34 Acres
1.5 Miles of Trails
Hebron, NH

This 34-acre property was donated in 1979 by Hope Norton Iaccaci. The sanctuary includes Ash Cottage, which is managed as part of the Newfound Audubon Center. It is comprised of a mosaic of open field, marsh, and forested habitats and includes frontage on Newfound Lake, one of the state’s largest. Nest boxes attract Eastern Bluebirds and Tree Swallows, and the fields are managed for grassland birds and other wildlife through a delayed mowing. Trails loop the grasslands and provide scenic views of Newfound Lake, where a diversity of bird and other wildlife species can be observed. Here, at the largest and most important wetland to wildlife on Newfound Lake, dabbling ducks congregate in Hebron Marsh from spring through fall, and Bald Eagles, Osprey, and Common Loons feed.

Note that parking is limited to a small lot on the south side of North Shore Rd.
