Current Land Protection and Advocacy Projects
Each year, the Forest Society adds thousands of acres to our treasury of conserved land. We work with landowners, donors, grant organizations, partner land trusts, conservation commissions and local and state governments to identify worthy properties, negotiate their purchase or protection through easements, raise money and manage each project until we can triumphantly register a new deed.
The Forest Society and our partners recently conserved 980 acres in the Belknap Mountains overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee. Jerry and Marcy Monkman / EcoPhotography.
We also devote time and resources to forest advocacy, providing leadership and informing public debate on conservation issues statewide.
Current projects include:
