Tuttle Swamp Wildlife Management Area
Acres: Four parcels totaling 179 acres
Acquisition History: The four tracts that make up the Tuttle Swamp WMA were acquired with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service North American Wetlands Conservation Act funds through the Great Bay Resource Protection Partnership and conveyed to New Hampshire Fish and Game through The Nature Conservancy in 2005 and 2006.
Description: These four tracts spread out over 1.5 square miles and abut other lands under conservation that protect parts of a large wetland complex known as Tuttle Swamp. Tuttle Swamp filters the water which eventually flows into the Piscassic River.
Common Wildlife: These properties support songbirds such as brown creeper, veery, red-eyed vireo, northern waterthrush, and red-shouldered hawk. Forested wetlands also provide important nesting habitat for waterfowl. Deer, woodcock, turkey, beaver and mink are also common here.
Special Notes: For maps of all conserved lands with public access and a list of allowed recreational uses in the Tuttle Swamp area, visit the Great Bay Resource Protection Partnership website.
Directions: The Benoit, Squillace and Wood/Sewall II Tracts of must all be accessed separately. Parking for Benoit is roadside, where safe, along Route 152 or Jan Lane. The Squillace Lot can be accessed from an old home site on the west side of Ash Swamp Rd approximately 0.25 mile south of the intersection of Route 152 and Ash Swamp Rd. The Wood/Sewall II Tract is accessed roadside, where safe, along Ash Swamp Road. There is 350 feet of road frontage just southeast of Beatrice Lane.
