Glover's Ledge is an Antioch University-owned property in Langdon, NH. The property is open for the public to explore and enjoy.
The forest is a mix of hardwoods and softwoods identified as hemlock-beech-oak-pine community in multiple age classes from early to late succession. On the property, one can also find bedrock outcroppings, seeps, streams, a two-acre pond and a one-and-a-half acre hemlock-cinnamon fern swamp with two vernal pools. There are three one-acre wildlife openings with plans to maintain them.
Prevent tick bites! Ticks can carry diseases including Lyme disease. Please check yourself for ticks after leaving the property and the next day, too.

History of the Property
In June 2014, after attending a forest management course at Antioch University New England, a local resident donated 76 acres of forest to the school for future students to enjoy and use for research projects. In 2018, an additional 14 acres and a building were added on as part of the property. As part of the donation, the Monadnock Conservancy holds a conservation easement on the property, protecting it from development and assuring that it will remain a place of natural beauty for years to come.
