Volunteers Help to Shape the Future of the Kelley-Drake Conservation Area
A Special Place in New Hampton

Community volunteers have been working all summer and fall to clear cellar holes and build hiking trails at the Kelley-Drake Conservation Area in New Hampton.  This fall the trails system was laid out by Lew Shelly, Snowhawk, LLC, and since then volunteers have been diligently working to clear brush and blowdowns, build rock steps, water bars, cribbing and cutting switchbacks along the steep terrain of the hillside. The area is open year-round and is not only ideal for hiking, but also snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, hunting or just enjoying a walk along the old stone walls and open meadow.

The Kelley Drake Conservation Area signifies the origins of New Hampton. In 1775 Samuel Kelly (1733-1813) brought his wife and two young sons from Exeter, NH to New Hampton and built a log cabin adjacent to Kelly Pond (now known as Pemigewasset Lake).

Winter Sowing of Seeds
Resident and New Hampton Garden Club’s Master Gardener Theo Denoncour has provided information on ways start seeds outdoors in mid-winter in our area.  This is winter sowing, which allows nature to decide when to germinate the seeds.   Winter sown plants are strong and stocky and naturally hardened off.

Permanent Medicine Collection Box Available at the Police Department

If you have unused or expired medications, you now have a way to safely and regularly dispose of them! The New Hampton Police Department is happy to announce the opening of a new permanent medication collection box in the town of New Hampton. The collection box is located in the lobby of the New Hampton Police Department at 24 Intervale Drive.

Did you know?? Approximately 70% of those who abuse prescription medications get them from family or friends, often from the medicine cabinet. (SAMHSA, 2006) This permanent medication collection box addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. By taking unused and expired medications out of our community, it significantly reduces the opportunities for misuse and/or abuse.
Protect our Groundwater! Flushing medications is NO LONGER recommended! Research shows that certain medications are not thoroughly flushed out during water treatment, and can end up contaminating our groundwater.

The following guidelines apply to the Town of New Hampton Medication Collection Box:
  1. Collection box is accessible Monday & Wednesday 8:00AM to 5:00 PM and Friday 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
  2. ONLY pharmaceutical drugs are to be placed in the box (prescription or over-the-counter medications).
  3. NO needles, syringes, lotions, aerosol cans, inhalers, or lancets will be collected.
  4. This voluntary collection process is FREE and ANONYMOUS.
  5. The collection box is constructed in such a manner and of materials that make it tamper proof.

Any questions regarding the collection box can be directed to any Law Enforcement Officer at the New Hampton Police Department at 603-744-5423.

For more information on safe and secure storage of medications, and for tips on how to talk to your family about prescription drug abuse, please contact Traci Fowler at Partners in Prevention, an initiative of the Lakes Region Partnership for Public Health: * 603-528-2145 x1800
