Kelly Brook – Supporting a Thriving Habitat Features Town Forest to Beede Site
Plaistow, NH —- Kelly Brook – Supporting a Thriving Habitat was recently debuted with local neighbors featuring narration from a bird’s-eye view along the Plaistow widlife corridor from the Town Forest to the Beede Site Habitat Area.
As you’ll see in the video below, we also showed new live wildlife camera videos, including a baby bobcat, and raw footage of project engineers walking the Beede site to check on animal tracks in the snow.
During the Zoom call, engineers and scientists with Woodard & Curran discussed the 35-plus species tracked on the site since game cameras were installed in the spring, including nesting ducks, deer, and bobcats.
The Beede Site has a portion of the site recognized as a Gold-Certified Wildlife Habitat Area, which since 2014 has been working to restore native flora and fauna to support pollinators and animal habitation.
The mission of the Beede Wildlife Management Team is to initiate and foster habitat elements that support wildlife while blending efforts to both clean and restore the land’s natural attributes.
Many successful endeavors have been implemented since 2014 to help restore the “Fairways” – from the native meadows restoration and bird nesting boxes to our turtle observation and celebrated bat survey and condo projects with the Timberlane High School STEM class.

Plaistow wildlife seems to be thriving on the Beede Site. Recently, game cameras spotted a buck, a bobcat family, and coyotes among other woodland creatures.
The newly-acquired Wildlife Habitat Conservation certification projects include:
- Affixing wood duck nesting boxes along Kelley Brook by the property;
- Installing insect hives to facilitate the native pollinators;
- Expanding our turtle observation program;
- Developing an invasive vegetative species identification and removal program; and
- Installing game cameras to track animal movements through the property.
