Meetinghouse Pond is located on the western slope of Mt. Monadnock, about 4.4 miles from the summit. Much of the forested, undeveloped shoreline of this 45 acre pond has been protected for over 200 years as town land. Because of the generosity of conservation-minded Marlborough residents, the remainder of the pond’s shoreline is protected as part of the 579 acre Kensan Devan Meetinghouse Pond Wildlife Sanctuary.
Containing a mosaic of wetland and upland habitat types, the Sanctuary is wooded with deciduous and mixed forest.
The New Hampshire Audubon offers multiple opportunities for those interested in joining us as a member or donating for one of our various causes.
Founded in 1914, NH Audubon’s mission is to protect New Hampshire’s natural environment for wildlife and for people. It is an independent statewide membership organization with four nature centers throughout the state. Expert educators give programs to children, families, and adults at centers and in schools. Staff biologists and volunteers conduct bird conservation efforts such as the Peregrine Falcon restoration. NH Audubon protects thousands of acres of wildlife habitat and is a voice for sound public policy on environmental issues.
