About Us

Green Woodlands is a private, family-operated organization with a goal of preserving a small piece of nature for future generations. Through our foundation, we focus on wildlife management, supporting environmental research and education, historical conservation, and outdoor activities. Over the last 20 years we have aimed at creating a space that draws people into the fresh air. We believe there is so much to learn about the environment and appreciating what is all around us.

Ben and the Bears

The Kilham Bear Center is a wonderful organization that we support. They have done amazing things for the bear community in our area for many years. Through the center, we have learned so much about the activities of black bears living on our property.

Training

We have had the pleasure of hosting several groups for different training purposes. The DMAT, or Disaster Medical Assistance Team, visits annually to do team building and educational exercises.

The DHART (Dartmouth-Hitchcock Advanced Response Team) has also used Green Woodlands for teaching purposes. They've even flown in a helicopter onto our designated landing spot.

Also on our list is the New England K9 Search and Rescue. They have visited us and used the property to practice drills for locating lost and missing persons.

 

Horseback Riding

We love seeing these beautiful animals riding our trails. However, we do ask the following guidelines to be followed for the safety of your horses and other people:

  • Only ride on the double track trails which are 15-20 feet wide and avoid the single-track mountain biking trails

  • Walk your horse over or around all wooden bridges on the property

  • Use either the Lyme side lot or the Clough rd lot for parking, as these lots can accommodate trailers and are close to appropriate trails

The Barn House

 

If you've ever been to Green Woodlands you may recognize this building. But you may not know the story behind it. It was designed and built to demonstrate a completely off the grid concept with modern amenities. From the sustainable electric, heating and plumbing systems to the building material harvested from the property; every aspect of this "cabin" is truly Green.
