What's New?

The Merrimack Conservation Commission welcomes you to the Outdoors!


The Horse Hill Nature Preserve parking lot on Amherst Road will be closed one day between Monday August 14th and Thursday August 17th. There will be parking lot maintenance done including a surface application to make it more like a paved parking lot. This improvement will allow us to mark the parking spots in the future if needed and make plowing, etc. easier. We apologize for not being more specific on the exact time and day but this project is related to other road work being in the vicinity.

Please plan accordingly or take advantage of our alternative parking lot by the Watanic Bowmen Club. Our HHNP trail map has that location.

Thanks for understanding
