      Wasserman Conservation Area consists of 88-acres of forested land purchased in 1989 with funding provided by the New Hampshire Land Conservation Investment Program (LCIP) for conservation purposes as set forth in New Hampshire RSA 221-A. The Merrimack Conservation Commission (MCC) manages the Conservation Area, with oversite by the NH Office of State Planning. Trailhead parking is available on the abutting Wasserman Park, managed by the Parks & Recreation Department. The Quarry Trail leaves the parking area in the vicinity of the Parks & Recreation Office and winds through the woods to an area where granite was quarried, probably for many of the homes in the area, before crossing Naticook Road and entering the Horse Hill Nature Preserve trail system.

      The Conservation Area includes 900 feet of shoreline on Naticook Lake and encompasses Naticook Brook as it flows from the lake into Greens Pond. A small dam controls the water level of the lake and is privately owned. The entire area is important to the quality of Merrimack water as the town maintains two drinking-water wells in the downstream area.

      In 2011 the town purchased 27 acres of land abutting the Conservation Area to the northeast along Greens Pond Road. The acquisition extended the protected area and provided the opportunity to extend trails from Wasserman Conservation Area out to Greens Pond Road and over to Gilmore Hill Memorial Forest and other trails in the area. The initial trail to Greens Pond Road was completed recently.
