Savage Wildlife Preserve borders the Salmon Falls River on the South Berwick/Eliot town line. Unique features of this 26-acre property include Shorey’s Brook, restored by dam removal in 2011, and trails through woods, fields, tidal marsh and freshwater stream. OBHS president Wendy Pirsig will relay the story of English merchants and adventurers such as Nicholas Shapleigh and Humphrey Chadbourne who settled along the Piscataqua River in the 1600s and how they launched America’s first clearcut.  


Corresponding Lecture: Lecture January 26, 7:30 p.m.: UNH professor Jeff Bolster, winner of the Bancroft prize in history for his book The Mortal Sea, describes the far-reaching impact of early settlement on the landscape of the Piscataqua and its resources, both fish and timber.*All OBHS/GWRLT History Hikes include a corresponding lecture. This lecture will happen 1-2 weeks ahead of the hike.

This hike is full, call our office to be added to the wait-list, 207-646-3604. Free to members, suggested donation of $5 ($10/family) for non-members.
