All Day
John J. McDevitt Woods, Bennett Road, Wilsons Mills
Call (207) 864-7311 for more information

Join us on our John J. McDevitt Woods property, located on the Magalloway River in Lincoln Plantation. Nestled in the hills between Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge and the Dartmouth Second College Grant, the parcel contributes to 230 acres to contiguous conservation land that dominate the headwaters of the Magalloway, Dead Diamond and Swift Diamond Rivers.  

Purchased in 2018, McDevitt woods is currently home to an unfinished cabin and privy. With your help, we will complete several projects this week that will open up user access to this property.

Projects will include:
-Trimming and blazing the trail from the cabin to the pond
-Constructing the firepit
-Shingling the outside of the cabin
-Trimming the trees around the field and cabin
-Construct generator pad and housing

Please note: There is no cell phone coverage or running water on site. We will be prepared with a first aid kit and an emergency plan but this is a remote location, so you must plan accordingly. The nearest hospital is the Upper Connecticut Valley Hospital in Colebrook, NH.
