Brewster Heath Preserve

Thanks to donors like you, we purchased the Brewster Heath Preserve!

The Wentworth Watershed Association Campaign for Heath Brook is complete! We received donations from 400 families, leadership grants from two foundations, the Land Bank of Wolfeboro-Tuftonboro and the Wolfeboro Fund plus a donation from the Wolfeboro Conservation Commission. With 100% pledge fulfillment,  we were able to close on the property in February of 2019. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the campaign.

The 111 acre property, named the Brewster Heath Preserve is owned by the Association and the Conservation Easement is held by the Town of Wolfeboro Conservation Commission. A 5 car gravel parking lot will be completed in August of 2019 and a mile loop trail through the property will be complete by September of 2019 thanks to volunteers that are assisting with the trail build. A map of the trail as well as images of the parking lot will be added to this page as phases of the project are complete. There is no access to the land from Heath Brook to safe guard the critical wetland vegetative buffer.

Please help us protect this ecologically sensitive area by staying on trails and practicing Leave No Trace Principles.

NO: Hunting, camping, fires, motor vehicles, bicycling, littering or dumping, trampling, collecting or removal of plants or wildlife.
