The Forest Society conserves land and manages forests, but people — our members and donors — are our greatest asset. Your support for land conservation in New Hampshire is a wise investment today and for the future. Your gifts protect the mountains, fields, forests, and waters that make New Hampshire an exceptional place to live, work and visit. There are many ways to support the Forest Society, including donating to our Annual Fund, giving to a land protection project, and joining us a member! For an end of year message from our president, Jack Savage, click here.
You can donate online by clicking one of the following links, through the mail (Attn. Anne Truslow), or over the phone by calling (603) 224-9945
It's the easiest way to show your support! The Forest Society's Annual Fund supports the full spectrum of our work to conserve, manage and care for lands and waters across the state and to engage people through education, advocacy, and outdoor programs that foster appreciation and citizen action on behalf of our great outdoors. You can also donate in honor or memory of a loved one.
Our members are part of a tight knit group of dedicated people who all share a similar goal – to preserve the open spaces that make New Hampshire so special. You can also give a membership as a gift and join as a business member.
Each year, the Forest Society works in partnership with landowners, neighbors, donors, grantmaking organizations, partner land trusts, conservation commissions and local and state governments to identify and conserve strategic additions to our network of permanently protected forests, lands and waters.
More Ways to Donate
Our stewardship funds help support the perpetual care and management of our conservation areas and the conservation easements that we hold. This work ranges from trail maintenance to habitat management to mowing and maintaining parking areas and trailheads.
Because owners do not always have the capacity to donate their land or conservation easements, sometimes the Forest Society has to purchase land or conservation easements, at times quickly, in order to protect a property’s exceptional natural resources. The Land Action Fund provides funding to accomplish these important projects.
Over 122 years, we’ve led numerous campaigns to protect special places, from Franconia Notch to Mount Monadnock. We defended the integrity of New Hampshire’s conserved lands by fighting and defeating Northern Pass. We’ve helped to create funding programs like the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP) and we’ve convened diverse interests to support sustainable forestry in the Granite State. But, to protect New Hampshire’s forests we must be perpetually vigilant.
