Conservation Area/Town Forest

Over the past two years the New Hampton Conservation Commission has been hard at work to restore to life the Kelley-Drake Conservation Area. A two-mile trail system had been constructed, complete with blazing and signage. The extensive Kelley-Drake farmstead cellar holes have been cleared and a kiosk installed, donated by the New Hampton Historical Society that describes the history of the property. It is well worth a visit to this historical site and natural resource, one of the earliest settled sites in New Hampton. Walk the trails, relax under a grove of trees and enjoy the natural beauty of this fantastic community owned property.

To get there: Take Sinclair Hill Rd., turn onto Kelley Pond Road.  Follow the trail signs and blazes to explore the forests and fields of this town owned property.


Black Bears


The USDA Wildlife Services works closely with the NH Fish and Game Department to mitigate human-bear conflicts throughout the state. They are reaching out to towns in NH in the hopes to get some information about black bears and mitigating bear concerns.
Prime black bear habitat includes deciduous forests (oaks, maple, beech etc.), wetlands, and riparian (along rivers) zones. The natural areas surrounding your town provide very good habitat for black bears. Many human-bear conflicts arise when bears frequent properties to access food
attractants that are found around homes. The most common attractants are birdfeeders, unsecured garbage, and compost piles which include food scraps. Livestock, such as chickens and pigs, can also attract bears when not properly protected. Electric fencing is the most effective way to
protect livestock. In most cases removing the attractant the bear(s) are utilizing eliminates the bear problem. It is also helpful to harass bears with noise, such as banging pots and pans, or
using compressed air horns to scare them away.

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
