Hilly and forested, the Stoney Brook Sanctuary is predominately deciduous (mostly hardwoods) and mixed forest. There are a number of woodland streams, including tributaries of Ring Brook, and a large marsh/shrub swamp along Blodgett Brook. The Sanctuary provides enough quality wildlife habitat to support fauna that includes black bear, moose, deer and an excellent bird diversity, including Pileated Woodpecker.
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.
