NSRWA Walking Club – Denham Pond in Hanover
Saturday, April 13, 2024

Please join us on April 13th from 10:00-11:30 as we explore Denham Pond in Hanover. Denham Pond is a spectacular place to visit in the spring, for its rich biodiversity and plethora of spring ephemerals. We are looking forward to a very special walk as we look for signs of spring. Denham Pond is a property owned by the Town of Hanover, located at 106 Circuit Street.  Formerly a well-managed forestry parcel, it contains an easy wood-road trail through wooded uplands, and mostly dry footpaths through wetland areas. There are two vernal pools on the east side of the property. Denham Pond, a small dammed pond located at the entrance to the property, has been well loved by generations of neighborhood children for summer fishing and winter skating.  Fauna to be seen at Denham Pond include spotted and red-backed salamanders, wood frogs, white tailed deer, wild turkey, and red squirrel. Notable flora include stands of mature white pine and eastern hemlock, as well as red cedar, red oak, beech, holly, and the occasional yellow birch.

Look for the NSRWA sign on Circuit Street.  Follow the gravel path to the end, where you will find available parking in an open field.  Click here for a map.

While we love dogs, NSRWA’s walks are dog-free in consideration for all participants. Please leave your pooches at home.

The Walking Club is looking for guest hosts. If you would like to lead a walk on a local trail that you love, please contact Theresa Delahunt at

This event is FREE, however, registration is required.
