In central Essex County, sprawled over three towns, are acres and acres of forested hills and low-lying swamp protected as conservation land. The different tracts of woods include John C. Phillips Wildlife Sanctuary, Boxford State Forest, and Boxford Woodlots. The area encompassing Bald Hill and Crooked Pond is generally known as Bald Hill Reservation. It lies within the town of Boxford near the Middleton and North Andover borders. Because there are more than 1,700 protected acres, wildlife abounds: ruffed grouse, goshawks, barred owls, woodcock, deer, fisher, and coyote all live here. The uncommon pileated woodpecker has also been seen here.
