Land Conservation

The Merrimack River Watershed extends from the confluence of the Pemigewasset and Winnipesaukee Rivers and encompasses over 5,000 square miles in 200 communities in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

Demonstrating his personal commitment to land conservation, Rydstrom donated a conservation easement to the Forest Society to protect a 347-acre woodlot in Northfield.

The Forest Society was one of only five nonprofits in New Hampshire selected for the grant.

A new angler access trail opened July 9.

We strongly encourage you to participate in this important project if you own current use land.

We hope you’ll take a few minutes to view a short slideshow of some highlights from our year of conserving, enjoying and caring for forests.

The new reservation, called the Ammonoosuc River Forest, abuts the White Mountain National Forest.

Spring ephemeral is the term used for many of New Hampshire's wildflowers that show off in the spring and then move on to a different life cycle where they wither away back underground after going through a reproductive phase. The short definition is growing over a short amount of time.
