  • Charmingfare Farm
    Baby goats and calves lounge on straw in a petting zoo while wolves and black bears frolic just yards away. It's not a radical experiment in natural selection, though; it's just part of the varied attractions at Charmingfare Farm. After taking in the entire zoo—from pigs to camels—guests can avail themselves of such diversions as trail rides atop one of the farm's friendly horses. Horse-drawn hayrides and sleigh ride socials culminate in a stop at a roaring bonfire where guests can cook all the hotdogs and 'smores they've captured in the wild.

  • Animal Adventures
    A haven for exotic animals rescued from neglect or abandonment, Animal Adventures lets visitors interact with its furry and scaly refugees, teaching them firsthand to appreciate and respect the earth's diverse wildlife. Working with a rotating cast of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and marsupials, animal experts regale audiences with facts and the backstories of each animal, such as how they were rescued and which cartoon representative of their species best captures their regional accent. Though its denizens regularly find new homes, Animal Adventures's altruistic menagerie has included a massive alligator snapping turtle, a canadian lynx, and an asian water monitor. The sanctuary also offers day camps for youngsters looking to get closer with the animals, and an animal-adoption program for adults looking to support the cause by taking a critter home and putting it through college.

  • Massachusetts Audubon Society
    One of the largest conservation organizations in New England, Mass Audubon cares for 34,000 acres of natural land in a network of more than 50 wildlife sanctuaries across the state. Its members receive free admission to these pacific preserves, where, alongside more than 150 endangered or threatened native species, they can breathe in Mother Nature?s perfume or have a good cry on her mossy bosom. During bird-migration season, alert gazes can capture some 300 species of sky surfer at Allens Pond on the South Coast, and visitors to Lincoln?s Drumlin Farm can re-enact Charlotte's Web with a motley band of sheep, cows, goats, and pigs.

  • The Fells Historic Estate and Gardens
    After serving as private secretary to Abraham Lincoln, ambassador to Great Britain, and secretary of state under Presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt, John Milton Hay sought a quiet retirement. So, in 1888, he began acquiring farmland in rural New Hampshire. There he built a glorious estate complete with a colonial revival home, gardens, and woodland stretching across 1,000 acres. Today, you can tour the stories expanses of that very property. Walk through the decorated 22-room home to get a feeling for what life was like at the turn of the century or explore the garden to see a variety of roses, perennial plants, and flowering trees. There are also nature trails on 675 acres of land the Hay family donated to preserve the nearby forests. Those paths meander around the edge of Lake Sunapee and duck through a swathe of Beech trees on the way down the hillside, inviting locals and visitors alike to lose themselves in the woods.
