About Us

Prescott Farm is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to environmental education and preservation. We provide year-round environmental education programs for all ages and a place in the Lakes Region community that encourages curiosity, discovery, fun and connection to the natural world.

Founded in 1997 as Prescott Conservancy, Inc. d/b/a Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center, Prescott Farm has helped awaken appreciation for nature and concern for the environment in thousands of program participants.  We offer a wide range of programs designed to preserve and pass down knowledge and skills that encourage an understanding of the natural systems that sustain us all and respect for the environment.

During the summer and school vacation weeks, our environmentally-themed WildQuest Camps offer children ages 4-14 the opportunity to explore, learn, and grow in nature for over 18 years. February and April vacation camps are available to campers ages 5-12, on a daily basis for the entire week. WildQuest Summer Camp features 9 unique nature-themed weeks for campers ages 4-14, with half- or full-day programs for ages 4 & 5, full-day camp for ages 6-12 and a special Leadership in Training Program for campers ages 13 & 14, all with before and after care available.  Learn more about WildQuest Camps here.

Fledglings Nature-Based Preschool at Prescott Farm offers children ages 3 – 5 the educational foundation they need to succeed in school while awakening in each child a natural curiosity and respect for nature which is at the core of every preschool lesson.  Learn more about Fledglings Preschool here.

Our Naturalist in the Classroom program supports teachers in local schools to provide place-based, hands-on lessons that incorporate the natural world to satisfy curriculum requirements and help keep children engaged and excited about learning throughout the school year.  Learn more about the Naturalist in the Classroom Program here.

Prescott Farm is also an ideal destination for school field trips from around New Hampshire, with innovative topics and programs available year-round, from winter animal tracking to Maple Sugaring in March to our magnificent trees. See our SCHOOL BOOKLET for more information.
