Fiske Pond Conservation Area

The Fiske Pond Conservation Area is owned by the Town of Wendell and managed by the Wendell Conservation Commission, the Fiske Pond Advisory Committee, Friends of Fiske, and dedicated local volunteers. The major feature of the 125-acre parcel is Fiske Pond, a 10-acre pond that formed when Fiske Brook was dammed in the 19th century. Remnants of a sawmill and an intact earthen dam are located at the southern end of the pond. Fiske Brook and Skerry Brook also run through the property, and several unique habitats contribute to a wide range of ecosystems and biodiversity including oak and pine forest, a spruce bog, as well as a hemlock swamp.
