Since 1961, the Conservancy has been working throughout New Hampshire to help protect nature and the precious natural resources that are essential to human life. Together with partners, local landowners and the support of members like you, we have helped to protect over 288,000 acres in New Hampshire.

The Connecticut River
From its start at a small, lonely pond near the Canadian border, the Connecticut River runs more than 410 miles — past forests, and farms, small towns and industrial cities built and occasionally ravaged by its power. Fed by 38 major tributaries and draining a basin of 11,985 square miles, the river passes rapids where bald eagles swoop for fish and through tidal marshes teeming with marine and bird life. Learn more about our work in the Connecticut River basin.
The Gulf of Maine
The Conservancy is integrating data from oceanography, biology, chemistry and even social science to identify threats to the Gulf of Maine. A baseline will then be established that will help us develop conservation strategies tailored to the Gulf. Learn more about our work in the Gulf of Maine.
Staying Connected in The Northern Appalachians
New Hampshire lies at the crossroads of the Northern Appalachians, an extensive wildlife habitat network reaching from the Tug Hill plateau in New York, across the Adirondacks and the northern reaches of New England, and on to the Canadian Maritime provinces. See how the Conservancy is working with partners to find ways to make sure connected habitat and healthy wildlife populations are an enduring feature of the Northern Appalachians.
