Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center

Prescott Farm is a nonprofit organization dedicated to environmental education and preservation. We provide year-round environmental education programs for all ages and a place in the Lakes Region community that encourages curiosity, discovery, fun and connection to the natural world.

Founded in 1997 as Prescott Conservancy, Inc. d/b/a Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center, Prescott Farm has helped awaken appreciation for nature and concern for the environment in thousands of program participants. We offer a wide range of programs designed to preserve and pass down knowledge and skills that encourage an understanding of the natural systems that sustain us all and respect for the environment.

During the summer and school vacation weeks, our environmentally-themed WildQuest Camps have offered children ages 6-12 the opportunity to explore, learn, and grow in nature for over 15 years.

Since 2015 our nature-based preschool, Fledglings Preschool at Prescott Farm, has offered children ages 3 to 5 the educational foundation they need to succeed in school while awakening in each child a natural curiosity and respect for nature which is at the core of every preschool lesson.

Our Naturalist in the Classroom program supports teachers in local schools to provide place-based, hands-on lessons that incorporate the natural world to satisfy curriculum requirements and help keep children engaged and excited about learning throughout the school year.

Unplug, relax, and connect with nature! Prescott Farm is designated as an official NH Wildlife Viewing area with 160 acres of conservation lands open to the public year-round. Visitors can play in our natural Playscape, learn about native plant and wildlife species, and explore at their own pace in our heritage gardens and along more than three miles of woodland, pond and field trails with views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the Belknap Mountains.
