Stonehouse Pond Wildlife Management Area
Acquisition History: NHFG purchased this parcel in 2010 from the Trust for Public Lands with monies from the Fish Habitat Account.
Description: Stonehouse Pond is an important cold water fishery for southeastern New Hampshire, managed as a fly-fishing only trout pond. Stonehouse Pond WMA is primarily forested with Appalachian oak-pine and provides an important upland buffer to numerous vernal pools, wetlands, and to the pond itself. The property provides guaranteed public access to the pond.
An additional 400 acres surrounding this property was also conserved in 2010 and is under the ownership of the Strafford Rivers Conservancy.
Common Wildlife: Typical wildlife include deer, bear, fisher, chickadees, nuthatches, and tufted titmouse.
