About Chadwick Meadows Wildlife Management Area
Chadwick Marsh can be reached by taking NH-11 in New London to Hominy Pot Road. Follow this road for one-half mile to a point just before the I-89 overpass. A small parking lot lies on the left and can accommodate 4 to 6 vehicles. Canoe access is available by a trail leading from the parking lot.

Chadwick Meadows Wildlife Management Area was donated to the Department in 1981. The 100-acre Chadwick Meadows WMA includes a 25-acre waterfowl impoundment with forested wetlands and shallow marsh emergent vegetation. The upland surrounding the marsh has hemlock, white pine, and early successional species such as aspen, cherry, red maple and old apple trees.

The upland habitats support white-tailed deer, black bear, moose, ruffed grouse, woodcock, and snowshoe hare. The marshes support a variety of wetland wildlife, particularly Canada geese, black ducks, mallards, wood ducks, beaver, muskrat and pied-billed grebes.

There are special deed restrictions at Chadwick Meadows. Deer can be taken by bow and arrow only. All other game species can be taken with a bow and arrow or with a shotgun using shot no larger than No. 4.
