Email:
Wapack National Wildlife Refuge was New Hampshire's first refuge and was established through a donation in 1972. The 1,672-acre refuge is located about 20 miles west of Nashua, New Hampshire and encompasses the 2,278 ft. North Pack Monadnock Mountain. The refuge is a popular hawk migration area and provides nesting habitat for numerous migratory songbirds such as the tree sparrow, Swainson's thrush, magnolia warbler, corssbills, pine grosbeaks and white-throated sparrow. The refuge also supports a wide variety of upland wildlife inlcuding deer, bear, coyote, fisher, fox, mink and weasel.

A three mile segment of the 21-mile Wapack Trail, a spur of the Appalachian Trail, cuts through the refuge and rewards hikers with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains.
