Launched in 2003, the Quabbin-to-Cardigan (Q2C) Partnership is a collaborative landscape-scale effort of 27 private organizations and public agencies to conserve the Monadnock Highlands of north-central Massachusetts and western New Hampshire. The Q2C partners meet quarterly to coordinate public and private finance efforts, communications, conservation planning, and real estate transaction work--including reviewing projects seeking partnership endorsement.
The Q2C Initiative does not protect land directly; its member organizations do. Land is conserved strictly on a willing-seller basis through a combination of conservation easements and land acquisitions, managed by private owners, conservation organizations and public agencies. The Q2C partners share a vision of consolidating the permanent protection of the region’s most ecologically significant forest blocks, and key connections between them for wildlife passage and human recreation.
