A 17-acre parcel of land was donated to Windham Land Trust by Jim and Jane Pringle in 2006. The Pringle Wildlife Preserve is a very good spot for bird watching. The viewing platform, which was built by an Eagle Scout and his troop, is perfect for viewing a great variety of birds that inhabit the area. There are ducks and great blue heron as well as many songbirds. The viewing platform is also used for stargazing. Otter Brook passes through the Preserve and otters can occasionally be spotted. There are also deer and other wildlife on the preserve. In the winter it is possible to cross-country ski on the preserve.
