The New Hampshire Chapter is proud to receive a $100,000 grant from the state's Land and Community Heritage Investment Program to support land protection at Potter Farm. This grant assists in the purchase of 252 acres in Groveton which include floodplain, hayfields and upland forest. The Potter Farm property nearly abuts Cape Horn, a 2,100-acre State Forest, which is contiguous to about 95,000 acres of protected land, including White Mountain National Forest.
“The recipients in LCHIP’s most recent grant round represent the value and importance of LCHIP to our state’s natural landscape, economy and quality of life,” said Daryl Burtnett, State Director. “The Nature Conservancy is grateful to LCHIP and our elected officials for supporting our efforts to preserve Potter Farm. It is our hope that Potter Farm will be a model for floodplain reconnection and restoration up and down the Connecticut River.” We are so grateful to LCHIP for this important and generous grant.
