Popple Island

Popple Island

149 Acres
1.5 Miles of Trails
Epsom, NH

Popple Island Wildlife Sanctuary is a 143 acre parcel that includes the western shore of Odiorne Pond. Roughly a quarter of the property is a wetland complex of open water, emergent, shrub swamp, and fen created by a series of beaver dams on the drainage from Odiorne Pond, from these wetlands emerges Lockes Brook, a very pretty and typical woodland brook. The majority of the Sanctuary is comprised of gently sloping hills covered with closed-canopy forests.

NH Audubon conducted forest management in the winter of 2020, which will result in a diversity of habitat types for birds, but which can look surprising to human visitors in the short-term. Please bear with us in the meantime and enjoy the return of birds and other wildlife to this sanctuary.
