Abstract

The Joe English conservation land parcel in Amherst, New Hampshire is owned by the town and the trails here are maintained by the Amherst Conservation Commission. Joe English was a very kind Native American who was a friend of the colonists in the late 1600s. For befriending the settlers from Massachusetts, Joe English was killed by hostile Indians from Southern Canada in 1706. There are a variety of trails that go through this conservation land that are well used by Amherst residents as well as the Peabody Mill Environmental Center (PMEC), an educational science center that abuts about 600 acres of the Joe English Conservation Land. PMEC is located at the end of Brook Rd in Amherst and this facility is where the public is able to park and access the Joe English trails. Since 1975 this land trust has been persistent in preserving hundreds of acres of conservation land in NH for the public to enjoy for generations. Birding is a very popular activity at the Joe English Reservation and attracts people from neighboring towns and states.
