From the sandy coastline of southeastern New Hampshire to the mountains and backwoods of the northern forest, from our fertile farmlands to cities built along mighty rivers, the Granite State way of life is tied to our diverse lands.
New Hampshire’s forests provide life-essential services — filtering our air and water and absorbing carbon from our atmosphere. The natural beauty of the Commonwealth provides the cornerstone of a $1.2 billion-a-year tourism industry. And the quality of life and economic security supported by nature make Massachusetts an ideal place to live and do business.
Of course, these lands offer critical habitat for natural communities as well.
Our forests have experienced a remarkable comeback since being cleared for pasture and farm fields and are a critical link in the vast, green ecological highway we call the Appalachians. And our coasts offer habitat to rare plants and animals, and migratory stopovers for myriad bird species.
Now these critical lands face threats from unsustainable development and climate change that could be more permanent — and more devastating — than anything they’ve had to face in the past.
But together, we can meet these challenges. Please be a part of our work by donating today.

Conservation easements are one of the most powerful, effective tools available for the permanent conservation of private lands in the United States. See how they work and if one might be right for you and your land!
Prescribed fire is an important management tool to increase an ecosystem’s resilience to the impacts of climate change and other threats, ensuring that natural areas like the Ossipee Pine Barrens continue to provide clean air and water for people, and vital habitat for nature.
Volunteers take to the woods (and fields... and roadsides...), using their knowledge (and a little tech) to hunt down invasive plants on New Hampshire's seacoast.
Joe Klementovich spent two days out in the field with volunteers, scientists, artists, and families to capture the essence of citizen science in action on film during the Green Hills Bioblitz. View the slideshow
The Nature of New Hampshire explores the Granite State’s stunning array of natural communities. In photos, drawings, and accessible text, this new book takes you on a tour of landscapes as varied as alpine meadows, tidal marshes, riverbanks, forests, ponds, dunes, and cliffs, from the White Mountains to the Seacoast.
