Wendall Marsh Waterfowl Management Area
Acquisition History: These 10 acres were purchased in 1960 from the Atkinson-Davis Corporation and Public Service of NH (now Eversource) to build a dam to enlarge and enhance the waterfowl habitat of Wendall Marsh.
Description: The property is comprised of a roughly equal amount of marsh and oak-pine forest. The biggest attraction to the property is access to the dam and marsh for waterfowl hunting, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing.
Common Wildlife: Waterfowl and wetland songbirds such as the red-winged blackbird, marsh wren, and swamp sparrow.
Special Notes: Outside of the NH Fish and Game property, much of the privately owned land surrounding Wendall Marsh is posted against hunting. It is still legal to hunt the marsh via boat or canoe.
Directions: Car top access is off of Route 11. From the Route 103B/11 intersection in the center of Sunapee, head west on Route 11. Travel 1.2 miles. A gravel driveway to the dam and parking area will be on your right.
