Exploring the Wildlife and Grounds at Castle in the Clouds

By: Mackenzie M. Padula, 5/26/2020

New Hampshire has a vast array of wildlife ranging from sea creatures to mountainous creatures – the Ossipee Mountain range in Moultonborough is no different. 

In the mountains that surround Castle in the Clouds there are black bears, moose, white tailed deer, wild turkey, bald eagle, wood turtle, bobolink and Eastern meadowlarks. On the Castle property you’ll also find trout in Shannon Pond, and very well may see our resident porcupine, Petey.

Moultonborough’s Wildlife Action Plan lists this area as a combination of wetlands, marsh, peat lands, hay and grasslands – protected at large by LRCT the land is considered to be taken care of.

Joe Callanan will be giving a presentation about NH Wildlife this summer – you can register for that event here.
