About Tuthill's Woodland Preserve
The 195 acres at the Tuthill’s Woodland Preserve is part of the Piscataquog Land Conservancy (PLC) which was founded in 1970. The PLC is a private, non-profit whose mission is to conserve land, water and wildlife within the Merrimack valley of New Hampshire.  As of January 1, 2020, PLC holds interests in 126 properties totaling just over 8,000 acres of land. The PLC announced in their 2017 Fall newsletter that a timber harvest would be scheduled for the upcoming winter at the Tuthill’s Woodland Preserve. Evidence of that recent harvest can be seen along the trail where areas of large open space allow for new growth to take place.
