Plainfield Sanctuary

Join us for an off-trail adventure into a mixed northern hardwood-hemlock forest, floodplain forest, and a glimpse into the rare calcareous riverside seep with its unique flora on Native Plant Trust's 99-acre sanctuary adjacent to the Connecticut River in New Hampshire. Plants you may see include Argentina anserina (common silverweed), Packera paupercula (balsam groundsel), Equisetum variegatum (variegated scouring-rush), Lobelia kalmii (brook lobelia), and Lobelia cardinalis (cardinal-flower). The field study also addresses common invasives that threaten native plants and approaches for combating them. Please note: this moderate hike is intended for experienced hikers and will cross uneven grounds and wet habitats (boots are recommended).
