Looking for a quiet place for an easy-to-moderate hike with beautiful views? You’d love our High Blue Reservation in Walpole. The Forest Society now has an opportunity to purchase 72 acres of adjacent forestland and add it to this popular reservation. We are very close to reaching our fundraising goal for this project. To purchase and conserve this property and provide for transaction and stewardship costs, we still have $12,000 left to raise by January 31st. Your gift will help ensure this project is a success.
Here’s why protecting this adjacent land is so important. It will:
- Enlarge our existing reservation to 246 acres, in an area ranked as a high conservation priority by the Quabbin-to-Cardigan Partnership and by the Town of Walpole’s Conservation Commission.
- Enhance the wildlife habitat of the reservation. Most of the acreage is ranked as “best habitat in the bioregion” by New Hampshire’s Wildlife Action Plan, and includes several small wetlands.
- Provide additional scenic views and several additional trails, including a section of a loop trail that circles back onto our High Blue Reservation.
Please help protect this important natural resource. Please click here to provide a gift today! Thank you!
