Bee visiting flora at the community wildlife garden

Enjoy the fruits of volunteer power at our Community Backyard Wildlife Garden at the Chapman’s Landing boat launch on the Squamscott River. With its native plantings, wildlife pond, and interpretive exhibits, this garden is a peaceful place to relax and get inspired to make your backyard more wildlife friendly. You’ll get ideas on how to maintain a beautiful backyard while providing shelter, food, and water for wildlife. There’s also a wildlife viewing platform that overlooks the adjacent salt marsh and an osprey nest that has been active since 1993.  Learn more about this property in the Chapman’s Landing pages of the Passport to Great Bay here.

Have some fun exploring with this scavenger hunt!

The garden is located alongside the boat parking area of this New Hampshire Fish & Game maintained boat access site. Leased dogs are allowed, please carry out all your trash.
