Plainfield Sanctuary


Jun 6, 2018 to Sep 30, 2018
03:15 PM


An unusually diverse assemblage of wildflower and fern species graces the steep banks of a wooded roadside in this 86-acre sanctuary. Please stay on the road at all times. Climbing on the steep bank will disturb this sensitive habitat and the intriguing plants which grow here. All plants including lime-loving species, woodland wildflowers and riverbank flora can be seen from the road. Woodland wildflowers - including various hepaticas, bloodroot, wild columbine, fringed polygala and rock saxifrage - bloom between late April and early June. The state of New Hampshire’s Critical Areas Program has designated the site as a “unique area,” and the “Sanctuaries of NH” describes it as suited for ecological research.
