Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center

"Through preservation and education, Prescott Farm celebrates the interconnections between our community and the natural systems that sustain us all." Prescott Farm’s vision is to engage members and visitors in meaningful experiences so they will form a relationship with Prescott Farm, develop an understanding of the connections among the community, environment and our place in it, and be inspired to make choices that will result in a healthier future on a personal, local and global scale.

PFEEC offers environmental education for all ages throughout the year including WildQuest camps, public programs, school field trips, and long-term partnerships with local schools.  The 160-acre historic family farm features woodland and field trails, a “green” building with geothermal and solar energy systems, historic barns, an old-fashioned maple sugaring operation during the month of March, heritage gardens, and a forested pond.   Our 3-mile trail system is open to the public for free daily from dawn to dusk. Prescott Farm has been owned by the Prescott family for over 200 years. 

The farm was established by Colonel Dudley Prescott of the 10th Regiment New Hampshire Militia.  The property was passed down through the Prescott/Pardoe family to the present.  In 1997, the Pardoe family established a private operating foundation/not-for-profit organization, Prescott Conservancy, Inc. (PCI) and gifted 160 acres of farmland to it.  The following year, PCI entered into a management partnership with the NH Audubon Society to offer environmental education programs on the property and in 2005, built the energy-efficient Samuel P. Pardoe Building for classroom and office space.  On April 1, 2009 PCI began operating the Center independently as Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center (PFEEC).
